The Missouri University of Science & Technology student chapter of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) provides hands-on learning opportunities, networking events, and fellowship for its members. Faculty advisor Greg Galecki, Ph.D, recently took chapter members on a field trip to Conco Quarries in Willard, Mo., and Springfield Underground in Springfield, Mo.

A recent study estimates the aggregates industry contributes $27 billion to the U.S. economy and employs more than 100,000 skilled workers. As the industry continues to grow, it will need new leaders. Through its student chapter program, the NSSGA helps to ensure that a new generation of qualified, dedicated professionals is ready to meet this demand.
