At EGS we are committed to community outreach. Our staff routinely assist in local community outreach efforts, and we support local K-12 stem activities throughout the year. We also encourge employees to donate time to a community service project of their choice, and we match their commitment of time with our commitment of financial support. At EGS we believe that if we work together, we can make our communities a better place to live.
EGS has been sponsoring and donating their time to support the FDOT District 2 and District 3 Construction Career Days for a number of years. These are yearly events that are hosted by the FDOT, and are intended to teach high school students about the various careers in the transportation and construction industries.
EGS employees (Katie Ball, P.E.) and the Jacksonville Branch of ASCE partnered with feeding Northeast Florida to separate and prepare food package items for the local community in need.
EGS employees (Nicole Bohaczyk, E.I.) and the Jacksonville Branch of ASCE volunteered their time on a Saturday to help clean up the McCoy River in Jacksonville Florida.
Virtually every employee of EGS was directly or indirectly effected by Hurricane Michael. As a result, our company went into overdrive to help those in need following the storm. Christin Gorman, P.E. led the effort for EGS, and our firm collected and distributed food and supplies to Panama City Florida and Mexico Beach Florida for months, in conjuntion with the Tallahassee Branch of ASCE, the big bend chapter of FES, and many other local engineering firms in the area.
EGS has volunteered for years to be a presenter at SciGirls Summer Camp Events. This is a program focused on exposing K-12 girls to the STEM Careers with interactive presentations and demonstrations. EGS participants have included Christin Gorman, P.E., Dyan Talbott, and many others over the years.
