He is completing his Associate of Science degree in Engineering and will transfer to Arkansas Tech University in January to work toward a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.

His openness to feedback exemplifies his ability to be a lifelong learner, an asset that will continue to serve him well in college and beyond. Fred is one of the most driven and career focused students in the engineering program.”

Kolp is a member of Phi Theta Kappa and received the NPC honors scholarship and the Hot Springs Village Computer Club scholarship. He hopes to pursue a career in the energy sector working with renewable resources.
