Career Days at Armstrong Middle School

The Texas Society of Professional Engineers Preston Trail Chapter is participating in activities involving Career Days at Armstrong Middle School in the Plano ISD on Friday October 20th for the 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to learn more about the many career possibilities that lay ahead in the engineering world.  We will have the chance to personally interact with many students from each grade level, not simply speak to one classroom of students.

The set-up mirrors that of a career fair.  The Career Days is for the full day (8:30 am-3:30 pm), but also offers half-day options (8:30 am-12 pm or 12-3:30 pm).  A light breakfast is provided for our morning speakers and lunch is catered for all speakers. This event is hosted in the gym.

If you’re interested in volunteering or have questions about the event, please contact Jason Conklin via email or at 214-500-7234.





This month we will have Timothy Tumulty, P.E., City of Rockwall recently retired Public Works Director/City Engineer discussing City of Rockwall’s CMOM (Capacity, Management, Operation, and Maintenance) Program.

When: Thursday, August 17, 2017 (Luncheon will start promptly at noon)

Where: Canyon Creek Country Club, Richardson, Texas

Please make sure to RSVP for the luncheon prior to noon on Monday, August 14

Preston Trail June Luncheon – Register Now

This month you will not want to miss our guest speaker, Mr. Steven Duong, AICP, Senior Urban Planner with AECOM, on the Hyperloop Texas Project.


Hyperloop is a new way to move people or things anywhere in the world quickly, safely, efficiently, on-demand and with minimal impact to the environment. The system uses electric propulsion to accelerate a passenger or cargo vehicle through a tube in a low pressure environment. The autonomous vehicle levitates slightly above the track and glides at faster-than-airline speeds over long distances. Hyperloop eliminates direct emissions, noise, delay, weather concerns and pilot error. It’s the next mode of transportation.

Thursday, June 15, 12:00 pm, Canyon Creek Country Club, Richardson, TX


In addition, you will not want to miss the installation of our newly elected Preston Trail Officers as they take on their new roles. We look forward to seeing you there!
