During the September 16th Institute of Transportation Engineers Technical Dinner held at the Arlington Holiday Inn, the Washington D.C. Section of ITE (WSDSITE) announced that it would provide sponsorship funding to the GMU ITE Student Chapter based on the chapter’s proposal submitted earlier in September. The chapter was presented with a $220 check for use in chapter events during the Fall 2008 semester. In addition to the chapter’s sponsorship funding award, Omar Elkassed was awarded the “Washington D.C. Section ITE Student Leadership Award” and was presented with $500 check. Congratulations to ITE!
