This summer, I traveled home to New York for a Construction job with the New York State Department of Transportation. I was hired as a Transportation Construction Inspector. In this job I would be going out onto job sites and making sure the workers were completing tasks according to the plans and specifications.
At first I was placed in a Planning Office, where I spent most of my time filling out Smart Growth Screening Tool (SGST), learning about Initial Project Proposals (IPP) and preparing for public meetings. SGSTs are documents that answer questions about how a project will impact the environment and a community. IPPs are strictly about a project, including details such as what the project will be, where it is located, costs, and where funds are coming from. I learned a lot about how to complete many different documents and where to find most of the information to complete these documents. Getting a project started out in the field isn’t just about the best option for the task, it’s also about explaining why other alternatives will not be carried out. Some projects could spend over a year just in the planning office before being pushed out to start construction.
After two months of being in the Planning Office, I was put out into the field on a job site. This project consisted of both day and night work due to the heavily populated area. My tasks have included Traffic Control Checklists, Work Zone Safety inspections, and watching laborers carrying out jobs, such as digging out spalls or grinding and temporary painting road lines. In order for a contractor to be paid, the TCIs must put in a pay order for the Engineer in Charge to approve. This is done each night when a daily report is completed.
Overall, I’ve learned a great amount about construction from NYSDOT. I’ve gotten to see what it takes to plan a project and what it’s like to be out on a project.

LADY BLUE DEVILS TAKE HOME SIX WHAC AWARDS
Release Date April 14, 2014
The Lawrence Tech Womens’s Lacrosse Team took home six awards from the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) for achievements on and off the field of competition.
Heading the list of student-athlete honorees is transfer student and co-captain Alyssa Shaver. She is one of 12 players to be named All-Conference First Team. The offensive specialist finished the season ranked second in the country in total groundballs with 61, third in goals with 68, fourth in points with 83, and 15th in assists with 15. Shaver matched her on-field success with a good performance in the classroom and qualified for the All-Academic Team with her 3.42 GPA in psychology.
Making the All-Conference Honorable Mention Team were two freshmen, Kadijah Kalo and Kendra Venema.
Kalo, a midfielder, played the role of “Robin” to Shaver’s “Batman” persona, finishing the season ranked third in the country in total groundballs with 57, fourth in assists with 21, tenth in points with 63, and 11th in goals with 42.
Co-captain Venema led a defense that was ranked fourth in the WHAC for caused turnovers with 8.20 per game. Individually, she ranked 10th in the nation in caused turnovers with 20, 34th in draw controls with 14, and 36th in groundballs with 31.
Another award winner was goalie Alyse Finley. Despite not having any lacrosse experience prior to the season, Finley walked on and stepped between the pipes to rank second in the WHAC in saves per-game with 10.40 and ninth nationally in total saves with 119. Her efforts were recognized by being selected to the Champions of Character Team – awarded to student-athletes that represent the five core values of integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, and servant leadership.
Finley may still be new to lacrosse but academically she is an experienced junior, carrying a 3.78 GPA in architectural engineering. She joins Shaver on the All-Academic Team, as only academic juniors or seniors with a 3.25 GPA or higher are eligible.
