Adams Rackes Receives Giegerich Scholarship

BSEG doctoral student Adams Rackes is a recent recipient of The Steven E. Giegerich Memorial Scholarship. The Drexel Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering Department selected Kerry Hamilton, Kimberlee Marcellus, and Rackes to receive the scholarship, which is awarded annually to one or more graduate students in the Department. In 1984, John Giegerich established this scholarship to honor his son Steven. While a student at Drexel, Steven passed away in a motorcycle accident. Since its founding, more than 40 Drexel students have benefited from the scholarship. In addition to this generous gift, Mr. Giegerich hosts an annual luncheon that provides the opportunity for current and past scholarship recipients to meet.
