The Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department's celebration plans for it's Centennial in April 2008 recently got a tremendous boost from our 1950 civil engineering graduate, A. James Clark. In a strong show of support for his alma mater, CEE alum Jim Clark has presented the department with a generous gift of $25,000. Mr. Clark also will attend the Centennial Gala on April 5.

According to CEE Department Chair, Dr. Ali Haghani, "Jim Clark's generous contribution will allow us to put together a Centennial program that is worthy of our century of outstanding educational efforts, that have produced highly productive and accomplished individuals such as himself who are pillars of our community and wonderful supporters of our university."

Jim Clark is the Chairman and CEO of Clark Enterprises, Inc. (which includes The Clark Construction Group). The company is responsible for building structures such as, the MCI Center, FedEx Field, and Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
