"The University of Kentucky opened the door for me to pursue an education, and develop connections with alumni that became the foundation of my career. Yet, it was the memories I made, and the friendships I cultivated that will last me a lifetime. I may live and work in Louisville, but I bleed blue and my heart will always be in Lexington." --Logan Clark, P.E., BSCE May 2016, MSCE August 2017 (Structures)

Hobbies: spending time with his wife, friends, and family, cheering on the Wildcats, playing soccer and basketball.
Favorite part of my job: Inspecting bridges – it allows you to get out of the office and do tangible work in front of and in service of the stakeholders and communities that interact with the infrastructure every day.
Future goals: To become a go-to leader in the industry of bridge maintenance, as well as a leader at my company.
