Monthly President’s Message

By: Chris Dolan

February, 2021


Hello ASHRAEcok Family!

To say this has been a weird year would be an understatement. From the pandemic, to ice storms, to a foot of snow….. I think all of us are ready for things to get back to normal. To that end, it was great to see everyone at our monthly meeting. We will continue to hand out Green, Yellow, and Red lanyards to signify your comfort level with personal contact. We will also do this for our Spouses event in April. Please plan to attend our annual event and get to know the companions of all of our members.

I'm pleased to advise that Austin Ainsworth, an undergraduate Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering student at Oklahoma State University, was selected by the ASHRAE Scholarship Trustees at the Society’s 2021 Virtual Winter Conference to receive the David C. J. Peters Scholarship in the amount of $5,000 for the 2021‐2022 academic year. All recipients of the Society’s Undergraduate Engineering, Technology, Regional/Chapter, and University‐specific Scholarships are listed on the Society’s website at For information about the Society’s Scholarship Program, please visit We will have Austin come to one of our meetings to congratulate him in person. Motions for CRC are being accepted now. If you have a motion you would like us to present, please reach out to Chris Dolan or Caleb Spradlin by March 31.
