Sarah Drummey, a fourth-year architectural engineering student in The Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction, has been awarded the $10,000 Willis H. Carrier Scholarship from ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers).

Drummey is one of five students from around the country to be awarded one of the highest-value scholarship amounts through ASHRAE's Willis H. Carrier and Reuben Trane Scholarships.

In the Durham School, Drummey also serves as MCA (Mechanical Contractors Association)/MESC (Mechanical Electrical Specialty Contractors) Student Chapter President and AESLAC (Architectural Engineering Student Leadership and Advisory Committee) Vice-President.

All recipients are full-time pre-engineering, engineering, and engineering technology students. More than $160,000 in scholarships was awarded this year and over the past 29 years, nearly 400 students have earned nearly $2 million in ASHRAE scholarships.

"Receiving this scholarship is a huge honor for me. It will help me focus and succeed in school, as well as grow in my profession to improve my talents," Drummey said. "I am very grateful for all the support I have received from the Durham School faculty and my past/current employers. Their continued support and words of encouragement have helped me so much in all of my endeavors and will continue to help me in the future."
