This year’s recipient, Lorraine Mae Alejandre is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in construction management at California State University, Long Beach. “I gained my passion in learning how things are built from being exposed to architecture during my time in community college, where I earned my associate degree in architectural technology,” said Mae Alejandre.”It has since evolved to a passion for construction and gaining a deep appreciation for how our infrastructure is built.
