UA student-surveyors take top honors in national competition

The University of Akron’s Surveying and Mapping team has triumphed again. The team took first place in the Student Surveying Competition sponsored by the National Society of Professional Surveyors in Phoenix, Ariz., on April 25. UA has participated in every contest since the NSPS competition was launched in 2002, finishing first five times, second three times and fifth once.

“Forensic Surveying” was the theme of this year's competition, which required each team to do a research paper, presentation and poster. The UA students enlisted the help of two Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers who identified an accident for the team to reconstruct and then helped them with the process.

UA’s team of surveying and mapping majors was led by Samantha Brown as captain, and also included Matt Hildebrandt, Andrew Koehler, Michael Kral, Luke Walker and Krista Rakich, a criminal justice major recruited for additional expertise.

Along with the team win, Michael Kral, a team member, was awarded its $2,000 Nettie Dracup Memorial Scholarship. Also, T. Michael Besch, director of UA’s Surveying and Mapping Program,
was awarded the Earl J. Fennel Award, presented "in recognition of distinguished educational contributions to ACSM and the surveying and mapping profession."
