The ceremony will be held on May 4, 2017, 6pm, at the Westmark Gold Room. The other two awardees are Becky Zaverl and Michelle Katz Bartlett.

It is also an annual fundraiser presented in partnership with British Petroleum. Funds from previous events have helped hundreds of girls to enjoy the fun of Girl Scouts in troops and at camp, from all around the state.
Engr. Engle earned her High School in 1958 and Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree in 1963 at Silliman University. Last August 28, 2016 she received the Outstanding Sillimanian Award in the field of Engineering: Project Management.
