Tate named to the Arkansas Academy of Biological and Agricultural Engineers

The Arkansas Academy of Biological and Agricultural Engineers was founded almost two decades ago to strengthen students’ dedication to the field, guide them through those fields, and to annually recognizes graduates who play a part in that process.

Garver Water Project Manager Rusty Tate, PE, was recently recognized for his commitment to the department by being inducted into the prestigious Academy during a ceremony in Fayetteville.

“I wouldn’t be able to contribute to our clients without the education I received from the university,” Tate said. “So to be selected to join colleagues and those in the profession I look up to in helping prepare other students to enter the field of biological and agricultural engineering, really is an honor.”

Tate, based at Garver’s Water Design Center in Fayetteville, has served clients for more than a decade with water and wastewater process planning and design. He has been actively involved in over 30 water and wastewater treatment plant projects, with responsibilities ranging from conceptual studies to detailed plant design and construction administration activities.

By strengthening its alumni and attracting private and corporate support, the Academy aims to enhance future curriculum and recognize those who bring honor to the fields of biological and agricultural engineering. In being selected for the Academy, Tate joins Garver Water Project Manager Kyle Kruger, who was selected in 2018.

Garver is celebrating its centennial year in 2019. To learn more, visit our centennial celebration page
