Eulises Valdovinos


In high school, Eulises thought he’d complete vocational school and then start working. But his plans changed when two teachers saw a different path for him and insisted he consider college. Now an engineering major, he is the first in his family to attend college. Eulises is paying it forward as he mentors his younger brother and is a peer advisor to over 35 students in the MESA Engineering Program. His membership in the Engineering Leadership Pathways Scholar, and the Society of Latino Engineers have provided him with the tools to accomplish becoming a project manager in the field.
