E lliott J ohnson : P roving that hard a little bit of luck – often pays off It’s not very often that college professors encourage their students to skip out on studying. But on the evening of Thursday, Oct. 1, 1992, Elliott Johnson and his classmates knew better than to even try to get into the chemical engineering labs at Mississippi State. “The football team played Florida on a Thursday night and our professors basically told us they were going to lock us out of the building,” Johnson said. “They really pushed us to be good students, but they also wanted us to enjoy our time on campus. That was one of the biggest football games in school history. I have a lot of great memories of being a student at Mississippi State, but that’s one of the best.” And with good reason. That night produced one of the all-time great Bulldog football victories – a 30-6 triumph over a highlyranked Gator squad in a game that was televised across the country on ESPN. Johnson spent plenty of other nights studying, though, and also took advantage of Mississippi State’s co-op program during his time as an undergraduate. He spent multiple semesters gaining valuable experience with Eastman Chemical in Kingsport, Tennessee, and was selected as a Kodak Scholar. After graduating with a degree in chemical engineering in 1993, Johnson parlayed that experience into a full-time job with the company. Bagley College of Engineering
2016 Annual Report
He spent several years with Eastman in a variety of operations, engineering, maintenance and research roles, earning a patent for his work in developing a unique scrubber system that helps eliminate more than 400 tons of emissions from the atmosphere each year. He even met his wife Angela during his time in east Tennessee, herself a University of Tennessee chemical engineering grad. In 1998, Johnson joined Chevron Chemical, and has steadily risen through the ranks in his almost 20 years with the company. Most recently, he was promoted to plant manager at Chevron Phillips’ Orange Plant in Orange, Texas. In that role, Johnson is responsible for the operation of two polyethylene units, rail logistics operations, maintenance and a full-scale laboratory. He oversees a workforce of 150 Chevron Phillips employees and more than 25 contract employees.
“Our professors treated us like family in many ways. They were always there to help when we needed it.
He had previously served as operations manager at Chevron Phillips’ Pasadena Plastics Complex in Pasadena, Texas, where he helped the plant reach its production goal of more than 2.1 billion pounds of final polyethylene products. “I am grateful for the experience I had at Eastman, but I got an opportunity to join Chevron and thought it was a good fit and a great career opportunity,” Johnson said. “Chevron really promotes teamwork, which is something that is very important to me.” 18
In an engineering career that spans more than 25 years, hard work and teamwork have been constants for Johnson. But he also admits that his start in engineering was the result of a little luck. Like many kids approaching college age, back in 1986, Johnson had a hard time deciding where to go to school and what to study. Having just finished his junior year at Rosedale High School in Rosedale, Miss., he had a love of math and science and good grades but couldn’t quite figure out what path to pursue. “I worked at the soda counter in an old-fashioned, familyowned drug store, making things like milkshakes, coke floats and sundaes,” Johnson said. “The owner knew I made very good grades in chemistry and math so he introduced me to pharmacy. He and his daughter were both Ole Miss pharmacy school grads.” Johnson also had a teacher at Rosedale High School who talked to him about careers in engineering. He attended the Minority Introduction to Engineering program at Mississippi State in the summer of 1986 and came away impressed. But still undecided. “I looked at the pros and cons of both pharmacy and engineering,” Johnson said. “I talked to family and teachers to get their input. I knew both were good options and I just had a hard time deciding.” In the end, Johnson flipped a coin, and, luckily for MSU and the engineering profession, it landed on chemical engineering. “I really enjoyed my years at Mississippi State,” Johnson said. “Our professors treated us like family in many ways. They were always there to help when we needed it. But they also made sure that we worked hard and really learned how to be good engineers. I’ve been fortunate that my hard work has paid off.” www.bagley.msstate.edu
E ngineering the T ailgate of the F uture Take a walk through the Junction on any Mississippi State football Saturday, and you’re likely to notice the variety of sights and sounds associated with tailgating. Tents and grills are ubiquitous but you’ll soon likely notice the hum of countless generators as Bulldog fans seek to power everything from televisions to crock pots to fans. At one football game this past fall, however, a group of Bagley College of Engineering students proved that you may one day be able to ditch that noisy gas-powered generator in favor of quieter, more environmentally friendly power sources. “One of the goals of our chapter is to focus more on alternative energy sources,” said Jeff Steinwinder, a senior civil engineering student and vice president of Mississippi State’s chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers. “It’s definitely an up-andcoming topic in the engineering field. As we talked about ways we could implement greener technologies, we came up with the idea of powering a tailgate with alternative energy.” The group studied renewable power options within their budget and set up a 500-watt system that included a 15-foot tall wind turbine and a 4x2-foot solar panel before the Bulldogs’ November 19 game against Arkansas. The two generators charged a battery, which then fed electricity through an inverter to power lights, a phone charging station and a set of speakers.
The dual generator set-up proved to be ideal as the wind was more prevalent early in the day, while the sun came out from behind overcast skies later in the afternoon. The system charged 30 cell phones throughout the day, speakers for about six hours and lights for three hours after the sun went down. And during approximately eight hours of tailgating, the set up only experienced one drop in voltage. Thanks to grants from Southern Company and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, the ASCE chapter created their renewable energy tailgate for about $850. They also took advantage of green-certified lumber donated from a biosustainability project in Mississippi State’s forestry department. “All of the equipment we used is commercially available,” Steinwinder said. “And it cost less than purchasing a new generator, which can run in the $1200 range.”
With football season in the rearview mirror, the group is continuing to study alternative power options in hopes of improving their tailgate set up for 2017 and beyond. “For our first time setting up a system like this, I would say it was very successful,” Steinwinder said. “Hopefully we can set up for more than one game next year and continue to grow the project.” And with any luck, thanks to their work, tailgating might just become greener – and maybe even a little bit quieter – in the future.

N atwar “N ate ” P atel : A trip down memory lane Many people may not remember the first time they set foot on their college campus. Was it for a campus visit as a high school student? Perhaps it was a summer orientation session. Maybe it was the day they moved into their dorm as a freshman. But for Natwar “Nate” Patel, the story of his first day – well, night really – at Mississippi State is one of those indelible memories that he’ll never forget. It was early January of 1969, and Patel had just flown halfway around the world from his home in Sola, a small town in the Indian state of Gujarat. He had chosen to study at Mississippi State based on its nuclear engineering curriculum and in part because he thought the campus looked nice in a brochure he had seen. “We took a cab from the airport in Columbus after having spent all day flying,” Patel said. “I didn’t speak very good English at the time and the cab just dropped us off on campus in the middle of the night.” Not only was it the middle of the night, it was the tail end of the winter break
“Thankfully, we ran across a campus security guard and he let us into an empty room so we could get some sleep,” he said.

between semesters. Campus was essentially empty. He tried to get into a couple of buildings, only to find them locked. And it probably goes without saying that he didn’t know anyone in town.
Patel eventually settled into his own dorm room in Garner Hall and into the campus and Starkville communities. He was connected to a host family who treated him like one of their own. He spent holidays with them and learned to love chicken. “I was amazed that a program like that existed but also very grateful,” Patel said. “It made my transition to campus and to the U.S. so much easier. Their support meant so much to me.” Patel’s goal was to study nuclear engineering, and Mississippi State was one of only a small handful of colleges who offered the program at the time. Once on campus, he focused on his classes and worked a few hours a week as a research assistant for one of his professors to make a little extra money. Most of that work involved doing research in the library, and he earned about $7 per week – about $45 per week in today’s money. “Nuclear engineering was very challenging,” Patel said. “I didn’t go out much,” he added with a smile. After graduating, he moved to Chicago but he faced a few additional challenges, not the least of which was the fact that he wasn’t an American citizen. “When I graduated, most of the companies who hired nuclear engineers required U.S. citizenship,” Patel said. “I did some odd Bagley College of Engineering

jobs to make ends meet. I was a baggage loader and a ticket agent at Trailways Bus Company in Chicago.â€? But the hard work and his patience eventually paid off. In 1976, he was hired as an engineer at Abbott Laboratories and worked his way up to a manufacturing supervisor position. A few years later, he moved to research and development where he designed and modified a wide range of disposable intravenous medical devices. He also co-patented a non-PVC disposable IV device. All told, he spent 27 years with Abbott Laboratories. And he became a U.S. citizen in 1982.
â€œI was amazed that a program like that existed but also very grateful.
Even though he would occasionally talk about his time at State, he hadnâ€™t been back to campus in nearly 45 years. So, for his 70th birthday, his family planned a surprise trip for him. This past October, Patel and his wife Devi, along with their three children and spouses and his three grandchildren, visited campus for a trip down memory lane. Thankfully, this time there was no need to hail down a passing security guard. After a visit to 28

The Bagley Impact: Private gifts ensure success When we talk about the impressive James Worth Bagley College impact, it is a great conversation to have with alumni, friends and corporations who already support or may be considering their support of Mississippi State University. Once the Bagley story unfolds, sometimes more doors open for financial resources that can help further our reach and our impact. Our past fundraising success has already laid a solid foundation, and Infinite Impact: The Mississippi State University Campaign can provide the energy and resources to accelerate us into the future. The campaign goals of the Bagley College focus on facility enhancements, endowed faculty positions, program endowments and, most importantly, student support. By infusing needed capital into critical programs and areas, we will make the impact of an MSU engineering education immeasurable. This ongoing campaign helps position our college and our university to compete on an international level and provide critical resources to support our ascent to the next level of students’ success. In an increasingly global society, it is our duty to provide a first-tier educational experience for all Bulldog scholars. With endowed and annual scholarships, the best students can focus on their studies while gaining crucial knowledge from some of the university’s most impressive faculty. The Bagley College must compete with well-known universities when hiring faculty, and many of those schools have large endowments to attract professors. If the Bagley College is to be competitive, we, too,
must provide the resources to bring the finest minds from across the world to campus—those who have a passion for teaching and those who also have a passion for research. Through Infinite Impact, the Bagley College seeks to create endowed professorships and chairs in every major academic area. These positions will be held by faculty with the potential to receive national and international distinction in their fields. These endowed chairs and professors will strengthen the long and successful relationships forged between faculty, the university and corporations. Along with major gifts for our college, we encourage you to take advantage of the university’s corporate matching gift program. Many corporations will match donations their employees make to educational institutions. Matching gifts from an employer can double or even triple your gift to MSU, and many of our alumni and friends follow this path in their support yearly. As always, thank you for your steadfast loyalty and deep devotion to this great university. I invite you to join our college development staff, Jan Blaine and Paul Zimmerman, and me in this continued effort to secure gifts that will influence and prepare the next generation of engineers at the Bagley College. With all of us doing our part on all levels, MSU and the Bagley College can move forward while increasing our reputation and furthering our impact.
