Scholarship Fund History
In 2007, the Bahamas Society of Engineers decided to form the Peter Gordon Memorial Scholarship Fund in tribute to Honorary BSE Member, Mr. Peter Gordon, whom passed in May 2007. Since the Society's inception, Engineer Gordon was an avid member and supporter of the Society and its Members. He was the first Secretary of the Bahamas Society of Engineers and assisted the organization greatly in its formative years. After retiring from the workforce, Engineer Gordon spent time mentoring and assisting young engineering graduates, many of whom went on to obtain their professional certifications. As a result of his substantial contributions to the engineering community, the Society granted Engineer Gordon the Honorary Membership title which represents Lifetime Membership in the Society. Additionally, Engineer Gordon was a Fellow Member of several other organizations including but not limited to: The Institute of Civil Engineers and The Institution of Highways and Transportation.
The professional career of Engineer Gordon spanned over forty-four (44) years and encompassed all spheres of Civil Engineering. He started his career as a Graduate Engineer in Linconshire, England in 1960 where he worked in the field for many years before coming to the Bahamas. In 1979, Engineer Gordon joined the Bahamas Ministry of Public Works where he served for fourteen years in the following capacities: Director of Works (1982 to 1993); Special Projects Coordinator (1993 - 1996).
