Lynda Melgarejo, EMgt’05, MS EMgt’13, was featured in the October 2013 issue of Inviting Arkansas magazine for her work promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. She and 11 other STEM advocates were honored at the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, Ark., on Oct. 17. Melgarejo is the production information manufacturing engineering supervisor at Caterpillar in Little Rock.

“Education helps define better opportunities to improve our quality of life,” she said in the story. “In my case, it was my engineering education that afforded me career opportunities with CAT. Knowledge in STEM areas ensures we drive technological changes that are positive and sustainable, while setting the stage for the growth of future generations.”
