of responsibility includes all or part of six states. Included in the area are 74 reservoirs and 760 miles of local protection projects. He has amassed an impressive list of professional achievements. Dr. Sterling has more than 15 years of experience direct- ing water resource engineering projects, feasibility assessments, engineering design and maintenance phases. He has worked with several federal and state resource agencies to address floodplain management, navigation channel design, coastal sediment man- agement and reservoir operations.


Recognized as an expert in hydrology and hydraulics, Dr. Sterling has published more than 30 peer-reviewed journal articles related to coastal monitoring and sediment transport. He has also served as a reviewer for peer-review journals such as Water Research, Continental Shelf Research and ASCE Journal of Hydrologic Engineering. Dr. Sterling has several honorary Army Civilian awards. The Commander’s Coin from the Army Corps of Engineers, the Deputy Commanding General for Civil and Emergency Opera- tions and two Commander’s Awards for Civilian Service have been awarded to him. Dr. Sterling earned a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering from University of Oklahoma. He earned his Master of Science in agricultural engineering and his Ph.

STUDENT LEADERSHIP


Marvin Carr Doctoral Candidate


Electrical Engineering Clarence M. Mitchell School of Engineering Morgan State University


“As an emerging scholar and researcher in the field of engineering education and educational psychology, he has taken the steps to open the doors to more young people of color so they may share in the benefits of education and training in STEM,” Sweets said. After Morgan State University, he was awarded the GEM Fellowship and started his academic and scholarly pursuits with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County School of Engi- neering in engineering education and STEM development. Today, he is a doctoral student in the Clarence M. Mitchell


Jr. School of Engineering at Morgan State and expects to com- plete his studies in May. Mr. Carr used student organizations as vessels to grow his leadership potential, share the STEM message, and encourage the achievement of his peers.


His first experience as a leader in his field came on the executive board of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and the Engineering Student Organization Council. His influence spread as he became active in the Student Government Association (SGA). Through service in the SGA, he truly began to flourish as a leader.


He became a mentor to students and served in four different leadership positions. In the SGA, he developed pride, courage, humility, and confidence that prepared him to be an effective leader.


Many of his achievements in STEM outreach were done via W


here will his dream take Marvin Carr? And of equal importance, who benefits from his pur- suit of that dream? Answer:


Hundreds of young students drawn to STEM careers, or pursuing them, for he hopes to become the dean of a school of engineering at an HBCU.


The scholar and champion of STEM education has con- nected himself to such a variety of organizations and establish- ments and schools and programs, that his reach is being felt by hundreds of up-and-coming STEM students and others intrigued by the fields because of him.


Now a systems engineer and project manager with iSTEMS,


Mr. Carr is a Bill and Melinda Gates Millennium Scholar — an academic honor that comes with a $300,000 scholarship to finance his engineering education from college through graduate school. As a Millennium Scholar, he travels throughout the coun- try supporting the foundation’s mission to increase the number of minority students who pursue terminal degrees in STEM fields. Besides an outstanding academic record, he is credited for his “innovative, creative and impactful approach to STEM outreach and Engineering Education research, and … [his] record as a transformational student leader and mentor to dozens of engineer- ing students and the larger collegiate and secondary education communities,” explains Albert Sweets Jr., principal, iSTEMS.

his fraternal organization, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. With it, he spent the last seven years running STEM and Robotics Camps. Under his influence, more than 20 students have decided to pursue engineering and/or science in college. And because of his campus leadership experiences, both inside and outside of the school of engineering, he has taught the importance of a holistic understanding of academic achievement, intellection develop- ment, and familiarity with STEM. “Surprisingly, every eighth-grade student Mr. Carr men- tored is now highly interested in STEM. This has caused me to think how we can use Mr. Carr to engage our scholars on every grade level in STEM,” commends Jacob Waites, Benchmark Kappa Youth Leadership Institute chairman.
