COUNTY ENGINEER ELECTED PRESIDENT OF TRI-STATE ASHE CHAPTER
American Society of Highway Engineers

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens has been elected to the position of President of the ASHE Triko Valley Section, the regional Tri-State chapter of the American Society of Highway Engineers. He will serve in the position for one year.

The American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) is a national organization that supports education, innovation, and fellowship among members and partners of the highway industry. Its goal is to promote a safe and efficient highway system for mobility now and in the future. The local Triko Valley Section of ASHE is comprised of engineers, contractors, and suppliers and has about 140 members.

"I am honored to be elected to this position and have the opportunity to serve with some of the industry's top leaders," Wilkens said. "The camaraderie in this group is really unique and provides an effective way of blending different perspectives to better serve the traveling public and building safer roads."

The ASHE Triko Valley Section also provides scholarships to local college students who are seeking careers in the engineering and construction industry. "Through this we hope to stimulate young people with an interest to pursue careers in the highway business," said Wilkens.

Some of his goals for the upcoming year are to increase scholarship amounts and section membership, and to promote innovation in highway funding, particularly with regards to Ohio highway funds. "Money continues to be one of the biggest issues when it comes to building highways and making road improvements," according to Wilkens. "Without adequate funding it will be difficult to meet current and future traffic demands and keep our roads safe."
