Conaway Geomatics is thrilled to announce that one of our team members, Christopher (Chris) Cervantes, has won a National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Scholarship from The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Research Institute.

Chris has been a part of the Conaway Geomatics team for nearly four years. He started as a Survey Analyst/Chainman and has advanced to the positions of Sr. Survey Technician and Party Chief. Chris supports our team both in the office and the field, drives our technological advancements, and exhibits outstanding leadership skills. We are honored to have him as a team member.

Chris plans to use the scholarship funds to continue his education at New Mexico State University, where he is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Geomatics. He also holds an Associate of Science degree in Land Surveying from College of the Canyons.

This October, Chris will be honored alongside other distinguished winners at the annual ACEC Fall Conference in New Orleans, LA.

Reflecting on his career choice, Chris shared:

“Choosing a career in surveying has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Surveying is a multifaceted field that allows you to work hands-on in the field and back up those findings in the office. Being a surveyor in the Geomatics industry means working with state-of-the-art tools and technologies daily. There’s immense potential for growth and endless opportunities to learn and achieve in this field.”

Chris also offered some words of wisdom for emerging professionals in the A&E industry:

“Surveying is an exciting career that allows for quick growth and blends technology with traditional surveying techniques. I began my journey with a suggestion from my father to look into Land Surveying, and now I am an integral part of the Conaway team. I enjoy playing a pivotal role in new technology, supporting our team and clients. If you are looking for a career that will challenge you, provide amazing opportunities, and offer advancing pay, I would encourage you to look into Land Surveying.”

Congratulations, Chris! We’re incredibly proud of your achievements and can’t wait to see what you accomplish next!
