CEE students give invited talks at MIT’s 37th Martin Luther King Jr. celebration

Written by:

Doctoral student Pierre Fuller, whose research applies computing techniques to solve problems in civil engineering, and civil engineering senior Khalea Robinson were selected as the two students to make presentations at MIT’s 37th annual Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast, held Feb. 9. The theme of the celebration was “Excellence is a Shared Path: Working Together for Justice and the Quality of Life.” Robinson’s talk, “The Shared Path,” stressed the critical importance of collaboration in securing the creation of a fairer, more just world. In his talk, “Excellence Through Humility,” Fuller spoke about the need for every individual to do his part, but with the recognition that it is only in the collective that the work will succeed.
