Mentor Experience: Jacob Klenke
Chevron Phillips Scholar Mentor, College of Chemical, Biological and Materials Engineering, Gallogly College of Engineering, University of Oklahoma
My initial reasons for joining the mentor program were twofold. First, mentors in the same program helped me to understand the class material when I was a sophomore, so I wanted to pass the same favor along to others. Secondly, one of my personal goals for my education was to use it for the unquestionable benefit of others. Because working as an engineer at a company may be more for the benefit of the company than for other people, I wanted to become a mentor to ensure that my education could improve somebody else’s life.
