Kruger inducted into prestigious University of Arkansas academy
The Arkansas Academy of Biological and Agricultural Engineering aims to strengthen the dedication to engineering of its students by setting personal and professional examples. Kyle Kruger, a product of the University of Arkansas’s College of Engineering and current Project Manager on Garver’s Water Team in its Norman, Oklahoma office, now has an opportunity to help set such an example.
Kruger was inducted recently into the Arkansas Academy of Biological and Agricultural Engineering during a ceremony in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Kruger, who earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Biological Engineering and a Master of Science in Environmental Engineering from the University of Arkansas, was one of seven new inductees into the Academy, which shapes future curriculum and recognizes graduates who bring honor to the fields of biological and agricultural engineering.
“I can’t thank the university and the College of Engineering enough for preparing me for my career,” said Kruger. “It’s an honor to be chosen among other dedicated colleagues to help make sure the next class of engineers are just as prepared."
Kruger has served the academy in the past on an advisory board that assists the department with evaluation of curriculum, while he has also presented to student clubs an overview of an engineering career as well as tips on preparing to enter the workforce.
Since joining Garver in 2009, Kruger has helped deliver several successful water and wastewater infrastructure improvement projects to a variety of clients, such as the recently upgraded Norman Wastewater Reclamation Facility (WRF), a supply improvements project at the Tuscumbia, Alabama, Water Treatment Plant; and a project that incorporated advanced treatment process at the Norman WRF for the purpose of facilitating direct discharge of effluent into Lake Thunderbird.
