Civil engineering student follows family tradition at UK

“I probably wouldn’t be at the University of Kentucky without the scholarship assistance I’m receiving,” says Mac Hall, a freshman civil engineering major from Pikeville, Kentucky.

“And I’ve always wanted to go to UK,” he continues. “It’s a family tradition. My aunt attended classes at the University, and my grandfather graduated from UK 50 years ago.”

Mac has two older sisters and two younger brothers. His career goal is to specialize in environmental engineering and return to eastern Kentucky to do work focusing on water quality.
