Atlanta, Ga. – (October 8, 2014) – The Georgia Institute of Technology has appointed William (Bill) Higginbotham, PE, President and CEO of ET Environmental Corporation, to the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering External Advisory Board (EAB). The EAB meets twice per year for a three year term with the option of a second term. The 2014 fall meeting will be held October 31.
Georgia Tech is consistently ranked among the top undergraduate and graduate civil and environmental engineering programs in the country, graduating more students than MIT, Stanford, Berkley, or Illinois. The responsibilities of the EAB are to promote and advocate for the School nationally and internationally; provide advice and strategy to the Chair, faculty, and staff leadership; and provide financial support individually and through external fund raising efforts. The activities of the EAB have consistently played a significant role in the overall success of the School.
“My experience at Tech has been invaluable to my career, and this is my chance to give something back in return,” says Bill Higginbotham, Georgia Tech alumni and Atlanta area resident. Mr. Higginbotham joins 29 distinguished members on this prestigious Board.
