The Women In Non-traditional Studies (WINS) Club hosted its 23rd annual Women in the Field Dinner.
WINS Adviser Professor Joy Carlson invited three female Alfred State graduates to campus to discuss their careers, give advice, and provide contact information to 24 current students. Speakers included Adelaide Matteson, who received a BS in construction management engineering technology from Alfred State in 2012, and is now project manager at Crane-Hogan Structural Systems in Spencerport; Shanley Keenan MacCrea, who earned an AS in engineering science from Alfred State in 2006, a BS in aeronautical engineering from Clarkson University in 2008, an MS in mechanical engineering from Columbia University in 2012, and is now a product engineer at Dresser-Rand in Wellsville; and Heather Rogers Landis, who received a BS in architecture from Alfred State in 2008, an MArch from Syracuse University in 2011, and is currently employed at CJS Architects in Rochester.
The two main goals of WINS are to further the knowledge of women in male-dominated fields and to sponsor civic engagement/fundraising projects, both locally and globally. WINS is open to all members of the Alfred State community, regardless of gender.
