LeTourneau is all about the relationships and the people you meet here. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get to know people on such a deep level; you’re living together, you’re growing with each other spiritually, and it’s really amazing.

  • Class of 2020, Civil Engineering



Q: What have you been doing since you graduated in 2020?

A: For the past year and a half I worked for a company called Aqueous Engineering in Tyler, TX. I was using my Civil Engineering degree to do swimming pool design. I had some great experiences there and got to work with other LeTourneau alums. It was a lot of fun. 

Q: And you are transitioning into something else now?

A: Ever since I was little, I had been interested in theme parks. I was always drawing theme parks as a kid, and I’m from Southern California, so I grew up going to Disneyland all the time. I always had this passion for how it was laid out and how it all came together. I loved going to the parks and thinking about how it was designed, so that inspired me to go into Engineering. Throughout my time at LeTourneau, people would know I’m the guy who wants to go and work at Disney. And I’m happy to say that through lots of persistence, lots of rejections, and the craziness of the pandemic putting off plans a little bit, I’m going to start in the Disney college program as a cast member. My goal will be to work up and get into Engineering Design and Project Management when the opportunity is there. 

Q: What do you have to say about your dream coming true at last? 

A: Disney’s all about making dreams come true, so they just made my dream come true. But LeTourneau was also a big part of that story--teaching me what I needed to know Engineering-wise, and also putting me out of my comfort zone in a place that’s far away from home. I’m excited for what all [this new chapter] has in store, and I’m very grateful and blessed for all that have helped me, and for God paving the way for this to happen. 

Q: What impacted you the most in your time at LeTourneau?

A: The biggest thing about LeTourneau is the relationships--those life-long friendships that you form. It’s really unique the way you go into a dorm and there’s all this culture there–-whichever dorm you pick–-it’s amazing the people you connect with and grow up with in a sense. You go to your classes and everything together, and I still stay in touch with a ton of them. But LeTourneau is all about the relationships and the people you meet here. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get to know people on such a deep level; you’re living together, you’re growing with each other spiritually, and it’s really amazing.
