Victor (Vic) Weston been selected to speak at the Trenchless Technology Center‘s Utility Investigation School (UIS) banquet on Thursday, March 5, 2020. His topic will be “At the End of the Day – Underground Safety Is Critical!”
Weston has been a member of the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors for 33 years, and was selected the 2018 UCTA MVP (Most Valuable Professional) by the Underground Construction Technology Association (UCTA).
Weston played a major leadership role in generating millions of dollars of construction industry support for construction education programs, something that has played a major role in increasing impacts across the state and nation. Weston helped bring major national construction industry speakers to Louisiana and would often escort them around to all major state universities so students could learn from national experts. He has also been a strong supporter for innovations that our institutions could bring to Louisiana’s construction industry, such as the support that he helped secure for the Trenchless Technology Center at Louisiana Tech in Ruston. Weston and the construction industry that he leads have been role models for industry/academia collaborations and support that are now being replicated by other industries and states.
Weston will be introduced by Dr. Les Guice (President of Louisiana Tech University) and Dr. Tom Iseley (Founder & Director of Development, TTC). Dr. Guice was the department head of Civil Engineering in 1988 when he hired Dr. Iseley and assisted with the establishment of TTC.
The TTC UIS School is held in conjunction with the ACSE’s Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI). The 5-day school will be held March 2-6 on the campus of Louisiana Tech University. More information can be found here.
