CONWAY — Happy Engineers Week!
Each year during the third week of February, HEB Engineers Inc. celebrates this nationally recognized nod to engineering professionals with in-house activities and prizes.
This week, the team received a riddle a day. All correct answers were entered into a pool for local business gift cards.
According to the National Society of Engineers, this nationally recognized week of festivity “is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.”
Thanks to this industry awareness, HEB took the opportunity to add eight young professionals to its team over the past year. Five are former valley residents who returned to establish roots here.
In the Civil and Structural Engineering Group, they include Adam Shane, Tucker Gordon, Dakota DelSignore and Eric Schroeder.
Shane joined HEB’s Bridgton, Maine, office in 2019. He grew up in Bridgton and graduated from the University of Maine in 2015. He is currently in the process of building a home in Naples, Maine. Outside of the office, he enjoys spending time on the lakes in the area and is assistant football coach at Lake Region High School in Naples.
Gordon joined HEB as an in-house environmental specialist and assists with planning, design and permitting tasks. He was born and raised outside of Boston but has family ties to the Mount Washington Valley.
Gordon is listed as an author in several scientific publications through environmental chemistry research projects while studying earth and planetary science at Johns Hopkins University. After graduating in 2016, Tucker moved to the valley full-time.
A skier, Gordon is a member of the HEB Cranmore Mountain Meister team, the HeeBeeGeeBees, as well as HEB’s 24 Hours of Great Glen relay team.
Both DelSignore and Schroeder joined the team after graduating from college last year.
Although originally from Rhode Island, DelSignore spent time in the valley during family vacations. Schroeder, an avid fisherman, spent his childhood years in Salem, Mass., until his family moved north to Porter, Maine.
HEB staff enjoys rooting on DelSignore during his rookie season on the Mountain Meister teams.
The Survey Group welcomed two MWV natives: David Ingram and Sean Perley.
Ingram interned with HEB in 2018 and joined the Survey Group as a full-time junior surveyor after graduating from the Thompson School of Applied Science at the University of New Hampshire in 2018. He is a HeeBeeGeeBee, as well as a rider for the HEB 24 Hours of Great Glen relay team.
Perley joined the Survey Group as a full-time survey technician in 2019. Born and raised in Bartlett, Perley moved back to the valley after graduating from Wheaton College. He in as avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting and fishing and is an assistant baseball coach at Kennett High School.
Joining the Resource Group — known as “‘the glue that holds it all together” — this past year were Meghan Moody and Amelya Saras.
Moody, HEB’s marketing coordinator, spends time outside of work volunteering for a number of local organizations, including the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust, STAY MWV and the MWV Women’s Hockey Association. She is a proud native who “had to leave to love it” but now says she would not want to call anywhere else home.
Saras is technical assistant and wellness program coordinator. Born and raised in North Conway, she moved back to the valley after graduating from the University of New Hampshire. She volunteers for the Eastern Slope Ski Club and is leading the charge for HEB’s 24 Hours of Great Glen relay teams.
The company extends a warm welcome to these dynamic young professionals who have joined the team.
