Robert Engler, Ph.D. Tribute slide show
It is with great respect that the US Section PIANC honors Commissioner Dr. Robert “Bob”
Engler who passed away in March of this year, by announcing the
Robert M. Engler , Ph.D.
Student Travel Scholarship.
During the recent Dredging 2015 Conference in Savannah, The Honorable Jo-Ellen Darcy, Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works), provided a moving tribute to Bob during which she made the announcement. The scholarship will enable PIANC USA to provide travel funding to full time students to attend its technical conferences. Dr. Engler was always extremely supportive of and mentoring to students and Young Professionals (YPs), making this the perfect tribute to keep his memory strong. Generations will continue to look to him for inspiration. Bob’s wife Pat took the stage to accept the plaque
commemorating the Scholarship. She was accompanied to the event
by her daughter Jimi Bonnette, son Rip Engler, and sister Jimmi Vasser. This slide show was showing during Ms. Darcy's remarks.
