Oregon State University’s College of Engineering will induct Jay Culbertson, Executive Vice President of Southland Industries, into its “Academy of Distinguished Engineers” at the 2019 Oregon Stater Awards.

Now in its 21styear, the awards celebrate achievements at the frontiers of engineering and honor alumni and industry partners whose contributions exemplify Oregon State’s leadership over the past 150 years.

“I have always considered it an honor to give back to an institution that has given so much to me, and my company,” said Culbertson, an alumnus and longtime donor. “I firmly believe in what OSU is doing —and it isn’t just football. It’s about the exceptional quality of the education the school provides and the tremendous impact College of Engineering graduates are ultimately making in the community and across the state and country.”
