Ali Latimer and Luke Lasekan were awarded the Ohio Minority Engineering Student Scholarship, which is also sponsored by the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus and the National Society of Black Engineers.
Ali is majoring in construction management and hopes to someday open her own business of flipping affordable homes for her community.
