Fox Pest Control Sponsors SHPE at TTU

Posted March 1, 2022

Fox Pest Control’s Lubbock branch is now a proud sponsor of The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) Texas Tech University chapter

If you’re not familiar with the SHPE, you’re not alone. In fact, our team at Fox Pest Control admittingly had never heard of the group until a week or so ago. But, when the team at Fox’s Lubbock branch learned about the goals and mission of the organization, they committed support immediately and became a sponsor. 

Created in Los Angeles in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city, the Society’s impetus was to form an organization of professional engineers that could serve as role models to the Hispanic community. 

Since 1974, SHPE chapters have sprung up throughout the United States. Each of the chapters focuses heavily on professional, leadership and academic development. (We love that! For, as you may know, at Fox Pest Control we strongly believe in the power of leadership and professional development, knowing that these things have a profound impact on our community and future.)  

The SHPE Texas Tech University (TTU) chapter was founded in 1990. The goal of the TTU SHPE chapter is to give professional development and academic support to its members, helping them find opportunities to network with those in their classes and in professional settings. Additionally, by introducing students pursuing the field of engineering to companies in the area, the chapter helps students identify career possibilities and gain a better understanding of the day-to-day work involved in the path they pursue. 

In addition to professional, leadership and academic development, which is offered through a series of meetings, events, workshops and conferences, the chapter also encourages members to participate in volunteer service projects. 

Fox Pest Control is proud to sponsor SHPE TTU. We’re excited to see all the amazing things that the next generation of engineers is able to accomplish. For more information on SHPE TTU, visit www.ttushpe.org.
