2019 Hispanic Heritage Month Highlights of STEM Latinx Leaders

Celebrating our #LatinxsInSTEM, today we highlight:
Jerry Romero
Construction Field Engineer at Bechtel Corporation
SHPE - GMU member since 2014, Shpe Oc member since 2019

Jerry Romero plays a vital role in the lives of the people he has impacted throughout his community. As a leader and inspirational engineer, he is breaking barriers. As a #firstgeneration, engineering college graduate, he has overcome barriers and brought others along in his successes throughout his academic and now professional career. He is a prime example of resilience and drive, he never gives up and pursues his dreams and ambitions regardless of what life throws at him. He is resourceful and exceptionally ambitious.

In the STEM field Jerry has acted as a key member of his team. He values his work and always puts his best foot forward. He is a team player as he motivates his colleagues in the industry, while also excelling in his own tasks in the process. He is committed to excellence in life and in the work place, always keeping his priorities in order. Prior to his professional career, he played a vital role in the STEM industry through his motivational influence on the younger generations encouraging them to continuously pursue their passion for STEM regardless of anything, surely increasing the pursuit of STEM industry professions among this generation and the next.

Jerry has impacted the lives in the Latinx community as a role model and mentor to his peers. He has been an advisor not only in the academic realm but also throughout life as he has been a helping hand unconditionally in numerous circumstances. He has propelled and acted as a push factor when his friends and familia felt they could not push any longer. He is full of humility and passion for what he does, never boasting and always assisting and guiding others no matter the circumstances. He is selfless and has a reputation of excellence and unconditional kindness for others.

We are still accepting nominations at https://www.jotform.com/SHPEDC/2019hhmhighlights! Nominate a friend/co-worker/colleague today to be featured throughout HHM!
