Hi J.P.,

This is Lan, student working for Dr. Perez at Auburn University. I am really thankful about the scholarship provided by IECA Southeast Chapter, through this support, I can attend the IECA conference, present our research work and learn more from industry perspective. I valued this opportunity to improve not only my study skills but also to extend my network and practice my social skills. This conference has become a motivation for my study. I feel very proud about my membership at Southeast Chapter. And I am looking forward to seeing you in the next conference.

Thank you again for all your time and support,

Hope you’ve had some time to relax since IECA and you’re staying safe in all of this corona craziness! I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for sponsoring me as a student moderator at IECA 2020. It was really exciting to reconnect with familiar faces from Denver 2020. I am so happy to officially be apart of the Southeast Chapter and have mentors that have connected me to this awesome organization! We are looking forward to the MS4 conference. 

If there is anything I can do to help now or in the future, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Thanks again!



“I would like to personally thank the Southeast Chapter of the International Erosion Control Association for awarding me a scholarship to the 2020 annual conference. I am honored to be chosen and greatly appreciate the wonderful opportunity.
I found the conference to be very educational and rewarding. I learned new ideas and management practices that I plan to incorporate into my organization. I also learned about new products that I believe will improve water quality.
The conference was great, and I look forward to using the experience in my career. Thank you for all that you do.”
Best regards,
Andrew Lake
