BEAM Sr. Dinner Gala

By | News

DiDonato was proud to be a sponsor of the 2018 Buffalo Engineering Awareness for Minorities (BEAM) Senior Dinner Gala, which was held on Thursday, May 31 at the Grapevine Banquet Facility.  As part of the celebration, John DiDonato established and distributed two Scholarships in honor of his father, Norman DiDonato, who passed away in March of this year.  Students wrote an essay about their experience with BEAM, their plans for education, and how they overcame any obstacles they have faced in their lives.  They also stated how they believe engineering will  impact the future.  All the essays were very well done.  It was hard for John to select just two.

In the end, he selected Brandon McDonald, who is looking to obtain a Ph.D. in Engineering and Nykolus Charter, who will be going to school for Mechanical Engineering.  Both students have worked hard, and taken advantage of the opportunities and resources that were available to them to be successful, including the BEAM program.

DiDonato Associates is proud of all the BEAM Graduates and wishes them the best of luck in their future endeavors.

Our East Spring Street Rehabilitation project has been collecting a few awards lately.  This street improvement project involved the use of “green infrastructure” design elements such as bioretention planters, permeable pavement, and a vegetated “green wall” to assist with decreasing the storm water runoff from the roadway into Glen Falls Park in Williamsville, New York.  As part of the overall rehabilitation and development of the old Water Mill area, DiDonato is proud to have been a part of this successful project for the Village.  See our Project Gallery section for more detailed information on this project.
