T&L Engineer Stars in Commercial Highlighting Career Path

Picture2Thompson and Litton Professional Engineer, Jennifer Dawson, was recently asked by Southwest Virginia Community College, where she completed part of her undergraduate courses, to participate in a commercial highlighting her career path as a female engineer in the area. The commercial was filmed at the Thompson and Litton office in Wise and at the Inn at Wise (one of T&L’s projects), assisted by guest star, Dick Houchins (Wise).

Jennifer is also featured on Southwest Virginia Community College’s website on their “Student Success Stories” page. An excerpt from her article explains, “Jennifer Dawson knew from an early age that she would tread a career path less traveled by most females. After graduating from Southwest Virginia Community College and Virginia Tech, she began a career as an engineer with Thompson & Litton in Wise, Virginia. During the 17 years she has worked for the company, she has risen through the ranks and is currently an Associate of the firm, as well as a Senior Project Engineer, proving females can succeed in fields dominated by men.”
