OHM Advisors’ Stidam Wins 2020 ACEC National Scholarship

SOUTHFIELD, MI — Alisha Stidam, an Engineer in OHM Advisors’ Municipal Engineering group, won the $10,000 Jim Kleinfelder Scholarship from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) alongside eight other general scholarship winners across the nation. These scholarships are awarded annually to students pursuing their bachelor’s or master’s degrees in an ABET-accredited engineering or land-surveying program. Stidam is currently working on a master’s degree in civil engineering at Lawrence Technological University with plans to graduate in December.

A young professional on the firm’s municipal team, Stidam brings a fresh perspective to solving the large-scale problems of the nation’s degrading infrastructure. One of the things she is most passionate about is managing assets that already exist through problem-solving — which she did recently in her work on a Michigan township project involving a full condition assessment and consulting on sewer rehabilitation. Stidam also channels her love of the outdoors into her work on projects that make nature accessible in a built environment, like a complex sidewalk design for a community seeking greater connectivity.

“It’s an honor to receive the prestigious Jim Kleinfelder ACEC National Scholarship,” Stidam said. “I look forward to completion of my master’s degree and am grateful for the support from ACEC at both the state and national levels that I’ve received along the way. I am enthusiastic about continuing my professional career under the community advancement firm with leading industry professionals.”

Stidam has been an avid community service volunteer since high school and continues to be involved with food drives, mentorship, fundraisers, internship programs, and more. “If there are opportunities to serve our community, why shouldn’t we?” Stidam said.

OHM Advisors delivers work across the architecture, engineering, and planning spheres. With more than 500 employees in offices throughout Ohio, Michigan, and Tennessee, the team partners with leaders at all levels of government, school districts, developers, universities, and private companies.
