On Sunday August 28, the SPE Curtin Student Chapter selected their finest athletes to represent their chapter at the Chevron City to Surf 2011 held in Perth, Australia. The Chevron City to Surf is a marathon that can range from 4 km to a full marathon. Eight of the Curtin Student Chapter members participated to raise over $400 for Activ – one of Western Australia’s benefit organizations that provide services and support to people with a developmental disability since 1951.
Also, students at SPE Curtin Student Chapter hosted Thomas Wilson at their university. Mr. Wilson, a reservoir engineer from HESS, shared his experiences in a presentation titled “Life and Experiences in the Petroleum Industry”. Thirty guests became new members of SPE after the presentation! Thomas shared vital tips to excel in the oil and gas industry, as well as his experiences working internationally as a young professional.
Congratulations SPE Curtin Student Chapter on these accomplishments!
