The Society of Military Engineers (SAME) Houston-Galveston Post recently named Yvonne Rivera Juarez, P.E and assistant project manager for Costello, Inc. as the 2019 Board President.
SAME is dedicated to leading collaborative efforts to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges. It is also the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services, and private industry.
“We are thrilled to see Yvonne recognized amongst our peers in the industry. She has dedicated much of her time and talent to SAME, and it’s exciting to see her excel to the position of President. We look forward to seeing where her leadership takes the organization,” says President of Costello, Inc., Dustin O’Neal.
Yvonne also serves on the Board of Young Professionals of Family Houston and Big Brothers Big Sisters Young Professionals Group. The leadership skills she developed in these roles paired with her continued involvement in SAME were key factors in her being elected SAME Board President.
“As SAME reaches 100 years in 2020, I hope to join the experience of the previous generation with the energy of the younger generation to create an organization that provides valuable information, engages its members, and creates endless opportunities,” says Juarez.
The goal of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man-made disasters, acts of terrorism, and improve security at home and abroad.
