Chair’s Message

Professional Portrait - Jessica M. Hou - March 12, 2014

Welcome to the website of CEEVC, Inc.! Thank you for your interest, and to all those who have supported our organization over the years. It is truly an honor to chair this Visiting Council of awesome volunteers, to pay back those who have gone before me for their support of me and many like me. I struggled to pay for my education at ODU and without the Boone Scholarship awarded to me by CEEVC, I might be in a different place. I know firsthand the impact a group of dedicated professional practitioners can have on the next generation of civil and environmental engineers. Our mission is to extend the influence and effectiveness of ODU’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and maintain a strong and constant liaison with leaders of the consulting, industrial, and government communities. Please get to know us, our events and activities, and our scholarship awardees through this website, and always feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at jhou@gfnet.com.

Go Monarchs!
