STEMCO, an EnPro Industries company that manufactures heavy-duty components and solutions for commercial vehicles, has announced that Longview High School senior Gus Williams has been named the recipient of its first-ever $5,000 Scholarship and Design Challenge.

STEMCO offered the scholarship to any local high school senior who exhibited leadership and engineering design capabilities. Applicants were required to build a hydraulic robot made out of readily available items like Popsicle sticks, plastic syringes and foam board.

“STEMCO deeply holds key values of safety, excellence and respect,” said Todd Anderson, president of STEMCO. “Upon reviewing Gus’ application and accomplishments, the scholarship review board was confident Gus has demonstrated those values through his application, design challenge and interview. Gus clearly demonstrated leadership and willingness to serve the Longview community through his volunteer efforts.”

Williams, a recent graduate of Longview’s International Baccalaureate program, was ranked No. 15 out of a class of 453 students. In the fall he plans to major in electrical engineering at the University of Arkansas.

“It’s an honor to be named the first-ever recipient of STEMCO’s Leadership and Engineering Design Scholarship,” said Williams. “Seeing my hard work pay off is gratifying and I am thankful STEMCO’s financial support will help me start my college career on the right note.”

Applications for STEMCO’s 2018 Scholarship and Design Challenge will be available at all area schools beginning Sept. 1.
