David Oxley Construct*ium Judge nd
“In a world where communication becomes ever more important for a successful carrier, the capstone program is vital to preparing the next generation of leaders for this important aspect of their success. As a judge of this year’s project presentations, I was impressed with level of preparation and commitment the students made in the competition. This program is a great tool for preparing future leaders and I hope that it not only continues, but grows in scope to include even more students. “

On April 29, 2016, I was honored to serve as one of the judges for the 2016 MCA sponsored Construct*ium Capstone Competition. I worked with a panel of talented judges spending considerable time evaluating each entry, discussing the pros and cons of each presentation and determining a fair result for the competition. Most impressive was the ability of the student “Teams” to present their proposals in a professional, organized and energetic manner.
The purpose of the competition was to provide a forum for the students to learn the importance of interpersonal communication skills, presentation technique and teamwork. The Construct*ium Competition on April 29 definitely exceeded that goal.
Thank you for letting me be a part of this rewarding experience.
