Aidan King (2018)

Aidan King studied Materials Engineering at the University of Alabama-Birmingham (UAB), and she graduated in May 2018. The NFFS Scholarship Committee was impressed with Ms. King’s extracurricular participation with industry groups like the American Foundry Society (AFS), Women in Metalcasting, and UAB’s Materials Processing and Development Center, as well as the range of skills and experiences that she has gained while working with non-ferrous metals at Hubbell Power Systems. Ms. King stated, "My desire is to be involved in project engineering to move forward within the metals industry to reduce scrap, move towards lean processing, and continue to work towards higher levels of safety." NFFS believes that Ms. King will be a valuable asset to the industry upon her graduation this spring.
