City of Elizabethtown
Corey Bond of Elizabethtown is the Director of Wastewater Treatment for the City of Elizabethtown and earned his professional engineering license in April of this year.
“When I was going to school for chemical engineering I knew I wanted to do something that would help people and I feel like working for the City of Elizabethtown has more than provided me with the opportunity to contribute to my community,” he said. “Growing up, I was always told I should try to give back and make opportunities for others to succeed.”
Amy Inman said that Bond, 27, helps the community by volunteering with youth education events. One is Mathcounts where he is coordinator for the My Kentucky Home Chapter of the Kentucky Society of Professional Engineers, she said.
“Mathcounts is a math competition in which middle school students strive for a chance at college scholarships,” Bond said. “I really enjoy coordinating this event because it allows me to help students explore STEM education and really help foster their interests in math and hopefully engineering.”
Inman said Bond also works with Engineering Day at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.
“This gives great insight to students from local high schools who have expressed an interest in pursuing engineering degrees,” Inman said.
Bond said, if he’s being honest, he doesn’t feel that successful.
“I just try to do my best every day, with every
interaction, in hopes of making a positive impact,” he said. “Any success I have achieved would all be credited to the people who helped me along the way and the
City of Elizabethtown for giving me the opportunity to work in the town I grew up in and to have the chance to help make it a better place for all to enjoy.”
