It is well known that NTA has engineers licensed in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Guam. Engineering of some form can be found in all of the services NTA offers, whether the project is for testing, design or CAD. NTA not only employs some of today’s brightest engineers, they also encourage the next generation of engineers as well. NTA, Inc. works closely with the NorthWood Scholarship Foundation to provide a $1,000 scholarship to a senior enrolled in a college or university to pursue an engineering degree. These future engineers, and the new techniques they will learn, are vital to the housing and building industry.
This year’s recipient is Kari Minnich, who plans to obtain her Engineering Degree through the cooperative program between Bethel College and the University of Notre Dame. Kari graduated with a 4.0 GPA, and while that is an accomplishment on its own, she achieved her Honors Diploma while serving as a volunteer tutor and working with the Northwood High School Student Council road cleanup. In addition, she has been a member of show choir, vocal jazz and choir throughout her four years at Northwood High School. Kari is also active in her church, and took part in mission trips to Chicago and Kenya, as well as participating in the “Feed My Starving Children” mission outreach. Her counselor, Karen Renner, describes her as “… one of those students who possesses a quiet dignity and yet not only meets but exceeds every expectation.”
NTA and the Tompos family wish Kari the best of luck in college and everything that comes after!
