At Missouri S&T, she was involved in Chi Epsilon Honor Society, Graduate Leadership Institute, Water Environment Federation, Society of Women Engineers and the American Society of Civil Engineers. In 2017, Bartels earned a bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering with a minor in geology, and she earns her master’s degree in environmental engineering this spring. She is a junior environmental engineer consultant for Golder Associates Inc.


Amy Costa

Amy Costa, a first-generation college student from Bridgeton, Missouri, has a passion for learning new things. She participated in several student organizations, including serving as president of the Missouri S&T Rocket Design Team.
