Tri Minh Ly, our 2010 Kyoshi Murata Scholarship + Internship recipient, has completed his summer internship at MOA. Tri was able to develop design, detailing and presentation skills and gain understanding of project delivery process by contributing to the schematic design and design development phases of the DaVita World Headquarters project. Tri was also able to visit and observe projects at various stages of construction including the Denver Hospice, The UPI Office Building and the Aurora High School. Undergraduate and graduate students of architecture from 50 schools were invited to submit for this prestigious Scholarship and Internship Award program. Tri will graduate with a Bachelor of Architecture Degree in the Spring of 2011 from The University of Houston. Well done Tri!
In a battle of culinary and mixology skill, the results are in on our annual guacamole and margarita cook-off. In a contest almost too close to call, our celebrity guest judges from Aquilano Leslie awarded the prestigious “Senior Frog” trophy to Michael McDonald for his most tasty guacamole. In a not-so-close decision, Jack Mousseau danced away with the giant margarita glass prize for a margarita described as “different from any they have tasted before”.
