ROGERS, AR — Northwest Arkansas-based Transportation Project Engineer Luke Freedle, PE, was selected for the latest class of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Arkansas Emerging Leaders Program. Over the course of the six-session program, Freedle will join 16 other Arkansas engineers in expanding their leadership skills and contributions to their industry and to quality of life in the state.

In being selected for the program, Freedle joins a number of Garver employees who have developed into holding leadership roles at the firm. These include Director of Innovation and Business Support Services Keith Tencleve, Transportation Team Leader Todd Mueller, Delta Region Aviation Leader Blake Roberson, Transportation Project Manager Joel Skinner, Project Manager Rusty Tate, Rogers Aviation Leader Chris Maestri, and Transportation Project Manager Brandon Durden.

“As an Arkansas native, I see this [as] an opportunity to not only better my home state, but to connect with other engineers I’ll work with in shaping it for future generations,” Freedle said. “I appreciate Garver’s investment in me and thank ACEC Arkansas for providing me with this opportunity to grow and learn so that I can excel my career and better my community.”

Freedle, based in Garver’s Rogers office, joined Garver's Transportation Team six years ago. In that time, he has worked with various municipalities to deliver roadway design and construction support services and assist with the preparation of plans and specifications.

Arkansas municipalities Freedle has worked with includes Bentonville, Fayetteville, Rogers, Springdale, Lowell, along with Lee’s Summit and Kansas City, Missouri; Starkville, Mississippi; and Norman, Oklahoma. His experience includes the design of new and reconstructed roadways, highway interchanges, highway overpasses, roundabouts and intersections, major and minor drainage systems, parking lots, trails, and pedestrian facilities.
