Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), EWeek is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding and interest in engineering and technology careers.

What better way to celebrate this week than to showcase a few local Loudoun Black engineering role models. A study has shown that when Black youth have exposure to the personal and professional accomplishments of Black engineers, they know that an engineering career is possible. #EngineersWeek #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackEngineersofLoudoun #InspiringFutureEngineers #NSBEAlum #CareerAndTechnicalEducation #EngineeringMentors

A great loss. We sincerely thank you, Mr. Bryan for your vision for MSAAC and send our deepest condolences to all who love you.

Loudoun, it's with profound sadness that I report Herb Bryan has passed. Herb was a wonderful, kind and humble man. He founded the Minority Student Achievement Advisory Committee (MSAAC) in Loudoun and always encouraged parents to be active and forward leaning in their children's schools. He positively impacted thousands of students and parents in Loudoun. Herb was also a founder, or member of various community organizations and committees.

Herb was a mentor to so many of us, always encouraging, always kind and always a gentleman.

My sincere condolences to his wife and family. May his memory be a blessing to you.

His legacy is long. Thank you my friend Farewell for now. I'll see you again. 😔💔
