The UK chapter of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration was again honored with the SME Outstanding Student Chapter Award and the Mineral Education Coalition Outstanding Student chapter awards for the 2019-2020 school year.
In the 2019-2020 school year, our chapter reached thousands through relentless outreach, recruiting, and networking events. Our students have created a culture of service and in turn accomplish a wide, lasting impact. They get the opportunity to speak publicly, to teach, and to be an ambassador with a wide variety of people. These skills will benefit them greatly as they begin their careers and leave them with innumerable connections with industry professionals and community leaders that can help move their careers forward.
We are incredibly proud of the vast opportunities we have given our students, the students we have introduced to the industry, and the positive impressions of mining we have created. Each year we continue to grow the variety of programming we offer, the groups we serve, and the number of students we can bring to the national conference; therefore growing the skills and opportunities our students have for professional development. This is only possible because of the dedication of our students and their passion for this industry. We believe we build professionals that build our industry and we can’t wait to be impressed by what our team will accomplish next.
