Award: 2021 CAST Friend of Science

Kevin Sparks is an Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering Technology and Construction Management at Colorado State University Pueblo (CSU Pueblo) and has been with CSU Pueblo since Fall of 2015. From his over 30 years of private professional work Kevin successfully introduced opportunities for students to prepare for documented certification. This has resulted in a high rate of internship placement for students and provided direct industry employment.  Kevin is the Program Directed for the National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) at CSU Pueblo. NSTI successfully provided scholarships to a program that exposed middle school students to many career opportunities in the transportation industry. The two-week program used professional presentations, hands-on experiences, and field trips. Participants participated in a commercial drone demonstration, made concrete samples, craft stick bridges, solar cars, and assembled drone kits. They participated in field trips to GCC Rio Grande’s cement manufacturing facility, the Pueblo Weisbrod Air Museum, a behind-the-scenes tour of Denver Union Station, and the Central 70 Project. Kevin feels success is a result of open, honest, and positive relationships with the students, participants in extracurricular activities, and industry professionals. Kevin is proud of working with student tutors, student researchers, and graduates to help them achieve their personal goals. His open-door policy has resulted in a bit of a worn couch from students who have needed an extended visit.  Kevin is fortunate to be humbled with sincere appreciation from alumni of the various programs he has participated in. Kevin is continually looking for feedback to improve the education of students of all ages in Southern Colorado.
