Student and Alumni Achievements

Ron Taylor ('12), ISP Master's degree alumn, was recently hired as a Project Manager for LightWave Solar Electric. Taylor focused on renewable energy and green building in the ISP program. 

I am very excited to have been chosen to be a part of a such a respectable company like Lightwave Solar Electric, LLC.  Being a part of a great team in a very innovative and sustainable industry is phenomenal.  Without attending the Institute for Sustainable Practice at Lipscomb University, I never would have been able to step into such a seamless career change from being an Environmental Geologist and Construction Manager to working in the renewable energy industry.  Lipscomb's ISP director, professors and staff were great to work with and their vision to grow our future sustainably was a true inspiration.  The experience of completing my graduate studies with such insightful people has not only defined me as a professional, but as a person and will help me in any endeavor that comes my way. - Ron Taylor

Andrew Leet ('11), ISP Master's degree alumn, was recently hired as an Environmental Specialist for Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. Andrew focused on renewable energy and corporate sustainability in the ISP program.

When I got offered the position to be an environmental specialist at Toyota, it became the happiest day of my life to date. By attending Lipscomb University and their Sustainability Program, I have been able to expand my knowledge and joined a company that I admire and will be a part of for a long time. The ISP program provided me with information, knowledge, and skills that help me tremendously in my current position as Environmental Specialist for Toyota in Erlanger, KY. On Numerous occasions, I find myself directly applying concepts learned through my courses. I remain indebted to the professors and staff of Lipscomb who helped make the experience fulfilling and enjoyable. The opportunities that I had to bond and network with my fellow students were amazing, while the events and trips put on by the ISP program were both fun and academically relevant. I am very appreciative for those that have helped me along this journey, to get to where I am today! - Andrew Leet
