Harlingen Engineering Staff Recognized by Santa Maria ISD

HARLINGEN, Texas–For three months, Santa Maria ISD senior, Erick Castellanos shadowed City Engineer Andy Vigstol and Assistant City Engineer, Kimberly Salinas.  It was part of a mentoring program at his high school to get hands-on experience on a job he hopes becomes his career.


Erick wants to be a land surveyor and is grateful to get an insight into what lays ahead once he earns an engineering degree at Texas A&M Kingsville.


Today, he and his mentoring teacher Ms. Deborah Van presented Vigstol and Salinas with a plaque as a small token of appreciation for the opportunity to learn more about his chosen profession.


Commissioner Ruben De La Rosa, an educator by trade, was also present to thank the Engineering staff for providing these types of learning opportunities.
