SDSM& T TO HONOR DOUG ALDRICH FOR 30 YEARS OF HIRING
STUDENTS FOR DOW CORNING JOBS
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T) will honor Dow Corning recruiter Douglas Aldrich ( BS ChE 62 / MS ChE 68) today in celebration of his 30 years of interviewing and hiring South Dakota students. A reception in Aldrich’s honor will be held at 4: 00 pm, Tuesday, October 19, in the Surbeck Student Center Bump Lounge.
Aldrich began conducting on- campus interviews at South Dakota Tech for Dow Corning in 1969. Over the years Aldrich has hired 79 SDSM& T graduates for full- time jobs and has invited 255 students for plant trips to Dow Corning’s facilities in Midland, Michigan. He has conducted a total of 1,013 student interviews. When Aldrich completes his on- campus interviews this Friday, he will have marked his 30th year of recruiting South Dakota Tech students for positions with Dow Corning.
Aldrich, a native of Sioux Falls, currently serves Dow Corning as Global Manager of Laboratory Facilities, Science and Technology. He was a recipient of SDSM& T’s newly established Distinguished Alumni Award that was presented during SDSM& T’s commencement last December.
