UConn EWB Completes Nicaragua Roadway Project

nic2aIn January, seniors Andrew Silva, Christopher M. Regan, Jr., and Ashley Jackman – accompanied by mentor Gerry Hardisty of Civil Engineering Services, LLC – spent 11 days in Nicaragua fulfilling a mission initially begun in 2008. The focus of their efforts is a dirt road that becomes impassable each year due to seasonal torrential rains. Commenting on the journey, Regan said “The most satisfying aspect was to gain real-world practical experience while making such a huge impact on the community.”
