    Of all the new co-curricular initiatives VMI has launched over the past 5-10 years, one of the things I'm most proud of is the Engineers Without Borders club. A few days ago the VMI Communications & Marketing team released this article about how the cadets in the club are already making plans for a second trip to the Potosi Region of Bolivia, where they've been helping to design and build an irrigation system to bring water to a small farming village.

    I love this so much. That's the Spirit of VMI.

    It is a really great story Jackie and a really impressive program. The attached picture tickled me- Bolivian villager drinking from a VMI waterbottle.
