The Next Generation of Surveyors

Amy Hopkins, PLS, recently participated in career day at University Park Elementary School in Monroeville, PA. The fourth grade classes got to be part of her field crew holding positions of Instrument Operator, Rodman, flaggers, field crew members, note taker and draftsmen. They learned about Mount Rushmore’s real name “3 Surveyors and Another Guy”, and each student received the PSLS coloring book. Amy is working to introduce surveying to students, so she can retire one day and trust the next generation of surveyors will competently carry on the profession.
