President • Jordi Berrett

Jordi Berrett

Jordi is from the far away village of Orem, UT. He served a mission to Guatemala and has been home for almost 3 years. He is the eldest of 4 children (aka “The Guinea Pig”). Jordi enjoys swimming, weight lifting, camping, target shooting, and anything outdoors. He started graduate school in January 2018 and enjoyed going to China for the Mega-infrastructure study abroad two summers ago.

Responsibilities:
  • Calling, planning, and conducting meetings
  • Coordinating all of the other officers’ efforts
  • Representing ITE to BYUSA and other external organizations
  • Making sure that deadlines are met and things run smoothly

Vice President • McKay Parkinson

McKay has the sharpest mind west of the Mississippi. If you ask him a question, you are foolish…because he answered your question 10 minutes ago without you even knowing. McKay was born and raised in Los Alamos, New Mexico as the middle son of the middle son… some say this chain continues for several generations. Most can’t remember though. He is currently working on his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering, expecting to graduate in December of 2018. He currently works at Infinity Consultants.

Responsibilities:

  • Organizing grant proposals and submitting them to ITE in order to fund the BYU Chapter
  • Assisting our President with any legitimate request

Secretary/Treasurer • Daniel Wells

Daniel was born in Tacoma Washington, where he grew up admiring the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (a.k.a. Galloping Gurdy). When he isn’t in the BYU creamery eating up all of the delicious Graham Canyon ice cream, he can also be found on Google’s Street View at Helaman Halls, where he was working at the time. He currently works at the BYU Physical Facilities Planning Department.

Responsibilities:

  • Monitoring Chapter finances
  • Purchasing supplies for Chapter activities
  • Keeping notes of meetings
  • Assisting with projects and assignments
  • Seeking support and sponsorship for BYU ITE
  • Compiling and submitting the Annual Report

Professional Forum Coordinator • Michael Stevens

Michael was born in the south, but quickly relocated to Colorado Springs, CO to be closer to BYU. He is a Junior and chose to major in Civil Engineering so as to prolong his days in Provo (with 1.5 more years until graduation). Michael participates as a member of the BYU bicycle committee, despite not owning a bicycle. He enjoys hiking, playing basketball, failing at golf, and ignoring UofU fans on social media.

Responsibilities:
  • Plan monthly professional forums for BYU ITE members to attend.

Activities/Service Coordinator • Michael Adamson

 

Responsibilities:

  • Organizing ITE Socials
  • Organizing ITE Field Trips
  • Organizing ITE Service Projects

Activities/Service Coordinator • Jared Lillywhite

Jared Lillywhite
Jared is an undergraduate at BYU, looking to graduate in the next year. When he becomes famous one day, it will be because of his kind heart and friendly personality. Jared and his wife recently welcomed their first child into the world (a son), and only time will tell if he will become the officers’ favorite ITE baby (favorite baby #1 is currently McKay Parkinson’s son, born in summer 2018).

Responsibilities:

  • Organizing ITE Socials
  • Organizing ITE Field Trips
  • Organizing ITE Service Projects

Student Coordinator • Sami Lau

Sami is a transplant to Utah from Omaha, Nebraska. Growing up with 5 brothers lent to her spending a lot of time around trains and planes, influencing her decision to pursue civil engineering. She is involved in many civil engineering clubs in addition to ITE, such as ASCE and AREMA. She has had summer internships with Oldcastle Materials and Union Pacific. She enjoys spending time outdoors, creating delicious meals, and photography. In December 2019, she’ll receive the best Christmas gift ever–her bachelors in civil engineering.

Responsibilities:

  • Make weekly announcements in Undergraduate Seminar
  • Make sure our activities get on the Announcement Sheet
  • Create any necessary posters or advertisements

Webmaster – Camille Lunt

Camille is from Mesa, Arizona where she learned to wear jackets in 60 degree weather. Since moving to Provo, she has bought an eskimo coat to protect her from the dangers of the snowy winters. She is currently working on a traffic safety research project at BYU, and this summer she interned with Arizona DOT. Camille enjoys warm weather, rain, going to museums, and playing the flute. If you by chance find her not in the engineering building, she is probably outside playing frisbee [weather permitting].

Responsibilities:

  • Creating and maintaining the Chapter’s website
  • Assisting other officers with their duties
