Who is Aaron Thomas?

Aaron Thomas’s more than 25-year engineering career was exemplified by countless instances where he went above and beyond to solve a water system’s challenges, even when it required getting dirty by fixing filters and chutes with his own tools and hands. His hands-on approach to improving water and wastewater treatment facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic region included preparing the next generation of engineers to do the same. Mr. Thomas took pride in introducing children to how water and wastewater systems work through classroom presentations and supporting interns and young engineers by guiding them through real-life engineering obstacles.

Chiemela attends Eastern Technical High School in Essex, MD and will attend college in the fall where she plans to major in civil engineering.
