Our Director of Business Development, Milton Davis, is easily one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. Beyond his infectious smile, you’ll find a man dedicated to his job and who works tirelessly to create opportunities for Alabama’s youth.
Until his freshman year of college, Milton was not even aware of the engineering profession. And when he obtained his degree in chemical engineering from the University of Alabama in the ’70s, he was only the 5th African-American to do so. Even all these years later, the percentage of African-American engineers is shockingly low. And the percentage of African-Americans entering college engineering programs is less than two percent — a statistic Milton is working hard to turn out.
So it was no surprise to the BLHI family when we found out that he was being featured in The Standard, an electronic publication released by the Alabama State Board of Engineers and Land Surveyors, to discuss engineering, representation, and the future growth of STEM.
BL Harbert is proud to have Milton as a valuable part of the team and we encourage you to take a moment to check out the article featuring him in the latest edition of The Standard (starts on page 6).
