We are happy to announce that this year’s Gus Archie Scholarship has been awarded to Darian Kane-Stolz. The Gus Archie Memorial Scholarship is supported by the SPE Foundation and awards an outstanding student who plans to enter a university and pursue an undergraduate degree in petroleum engineering.
Darian Kane-Stolz is from Long Island, New York. Darina attended Smithtown High School West, where she took the most challenging courses available and was Vice President of her National Honor Society chapter. In the fall, Darian will be attending the University of Texas at Austin for a degree in Petroleum Engineering.
Darian has said that receiving the Gus Archie Memorial Scholarship is a beacon of hope for her future. “All of my life, I have strived to succeed academically. Receiving this scholarship shows me that I am on the right track to following my dream of becoming a Petroleum Engineer. The funds will help ease the financial burden of attending college and I am incredibly honoured and humbled by being selected.”
In the future, Darian wishes to help refine the recovery process of oil to make the process more environmentally friendly.
