Jose Beltran Bentonville, Arkansas

Alyssa Bobalik Aledo, Texas

“Being born in a small town in Mexico, I never would have imagined that my journey would lead me 1,600 miles to the University of Arkansas. Following the death of my father, my mother left everything behind so that my sisters and I could come to a country of opportunity. From an early age, I was always interested in the inner workings of processes, often being regarded as the kid that always asked the questions. My dream has always been to become an engineer and break the mold that my associated with my ethnicity. Coming into college I had my eyes set on becoming an Aerospace Engineer, given my first word as a baby was “avión” which translates to airplane. Very quickly I realized that my destiny was not in that discipline. After doing research with Dr. Shengfan Zhang, I knew that I would be an Industrial Engineer. No other discipline has the dedicated faculty members who actually make a connection with students. I am a big family person and I know that I found a family with the faculty, students and alumni of the Industrial Engineering Department. This has me excited for my future.”

Esteban Lopez La Paz, Bolivia

Annie Little Leawood, Kansas When Annie was a little girl, she was was very curious about how everything worked and wanted to know the meaning behind even the simplest things. Her parents always said she would be a great engineer; however, she had a desire to help others and thought a career in medicine was the only meaningful way to do so. Therefore, Annie spent her first two years at the University of Arkansas as a Kinesiology, Pre-Med major. A week before fall 2017 classes began, she had what she calls a “mid-college crisis” and she changed her major to Industrial Engineering. Before this decision, Annie says she felt like she was just going through the motions and not tapping into her full potential as a student. She said that changing her major to Industrial Engineering was the most impulsive, yet extremely rewarding decision she has ever made. Because of this change in major, Annie’s graduation date was pushed back from May 2019 to May 2020.With the AAIE scholarships she has received, Annie will be able to fully-commit herself to her last year of studies without the unplanned financial burdens. Annie is so blessed and grateful for the supportive professors, peers, and the generous donors within the Industrial Engineering Department.

Jaira decided in high school she wanted to major in Industrial Engineering, she said her love of mathematics and science led her to engineering, but a cousin introduced the discipline to her. She was convinced when she saw the opportunities it represented.

Caroline recently transferred to the Department because of an Industrial Engineering internship she did in summer 2018 at the Dillard’s corporate office.

She has enjoyed her time at the University of Arkansas. During her first year, she served as Community Service Chair for the student chapter of the National Society for Black Engineers (N.S.B.E.). She is a member of the Black Student Association and Students Advocating Stronger Sisterhood. During her sophomore year, she became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and was elected to the Membership Chair position for the N.S.B.E. She says she loves to create interesting programs, recruit new members and do the best job she can for the organization. Her long-term goal is to work in the oil and gas industry and perhaps open a dance studio for less fortunate children. “The scholarships I have received will provide stability and relieve the financial struggle of paying for college. I will be better able to dedicate myself fully to my studies, and for that I will be eternally grateful.”

It has been a different approach to academia, meeting students from around the world, and sharing my own interests and values. I am forever in debt to the donors of the Industrial Engineering Department for their generosity and support of my travels and experiences in Australia.” She shared her thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Brian Henley and the Larry Stephens family for generously awarding her scholarships for the upcoming year, and promises to do everything in her power to pay it forward with her time, talent, and hopefully one day, as an engineering professor.
