Senior Jack Glock was recently selected as the recipient of the 2020 Phi Kappa Phi Medallion Award. This award is only given to one student in each college at Virginia Tech.
Glock is from Fallston, Maryland and is interested in pursuing a future in Geotechnical Engineering. His goal is to earn his P.E. and work at a design firm. “I want to use my knowledge from Virginia Tech in the private sector to design and construct safe and economical retaining walls and foundation structures,” he said.
Jack serves as a civil and environmental ambassador. When he’s not studying engineering, he enjoys participating in intramural sports, serving the Blacksburg community, growing in his faith, and being outdoors.
He has held a number of internships including his current position as Research and Development Intern for Schnabel Engineering. He has also interned at Bunnell Lammons Engineering, and Whitman, Requardt and Associates, LLP.
“This recognition could not have gone to a more deserving student,” said Director of Undergraduate Advising and Student Services Kara Lattimer.
Virginia Tech’s chapter of Phi Kappa Phi is involved in a number of efforts to recognize scholarship and academic excellence. The chapter was recently recognized as a Chapter of Merit for these efforts.
