First Annual Sayre Chili Fest
Posted October 18, 2019

The 1st Annual Chili Fest at Sayre took place on Friday, October 18th over the lunch hour. This was a fun event where employees had the chance to show off their best chili recipes, with bragging rights on the line.

All six pots of chili tasted delicious, so it was hard to declare a winner. Each one had a different taste and spices. Two of the six were very spicy. One of them contained two jalapenos, one habanero, and one Carolina Reaper! 

Thanks to Barry, Branson, Cole, Gabe, and Troy for making and bringing chili. And thanks to other Sayre team members for bringing other food items and for bravely trying all the different kinds of chili. It was fun!

New Professional Engineers at Sayre

Congratulations to Tyson Hasz and Karin Lang on passing the professional engineer (PE) exam! Per the SD Board of Technical Professions, licensure as a professional engineer involves three main components: education, experience and examinations.

To be eligible to apply to take the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam, individuals must have a baccalaureate degree in engineering and four years of engineering experience under the direct supervision of licensed professional engineers. The PE Civil exam is an 8-hour exam with 80 questions to prove competency in an engineering discipline, which requires months of studying and preparation.

Congrats Karin Lang, P.E., and Tyson Hasz, P.E.!
