Amanda Ruksznis will be a junior majoring in civil engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, MA. Her father, Thomas Ruksznis, is equipment superintendent at Cianbro Corporation, Pittsfield, ME. Last summer, she worked at Cianbro as an electrician's helper. She is the recipient of the Christopher A. Lorenz Memorial Scholarship.

“Amanda is one of the best students that I have advised here at WPI,” said mechanical engineering professor Isa Bar-On. “She is very reliable and has a very serious commitment to whatever she is doing. She does not know what it means to do something only partially or superficially. If she does something, she does it right.”
