    ABOUT KEYNOTE SPEAKER HOLLY PAINTER, PE

     
    Holly is a professional engineer with almost 15 years of experience specializing in transportation engineering. After graduating from Florida State University with a BS in Civil Engineering, Holly spent most of her career focused on transportation design with some bridge design and ITS Traffic Operations scattered into the mix. As a Project Manager at KCI Technologies, she works primarily on contracts with the Georgia Department of Transportation, City of Sandy Springs, City of Roswell and Gwinnett County. When she's not working, she is passionate about living her best life with her husband, Nick. They love to travel, be outdoors, play tennis and spend time with their families and animals. She loves volunteering for the community and keeping a very detailed schedule, which drives Nick crazy, but it works for them.

Your sponsorship will enable us to offer free attendance for those students and you will be recognized as the benefactor of those attending on scholarship. 

    All booths are responsible for providing a quick engineering game or activity that will last 5-7 minutes while the students are at the booth. Booths are also encouraged to have advertising/marketing "swag" materials as well. The activity should be engineering related and be able to be performed individually or in pairs. Please note that KSU prohibits the use of balloons in their event facility, and any activities that require chemicals or flame must be pre-approved.
