George White Jr. is a proposal manager for power plant engineering at Black & Veatch. He was recognized as the Lt. Gen. Joe N. Ballard Legacy Award winner at the 2017 BEYA STEM Conference for his willingness to give to the community.

The Lt. Gen. Joe N. Ballard Legacy Award - Public Engineering Services is named after the 49th Chief of Engineers and Commander, United States Army Corps of Engineers. President Clinton appointed Lt. Gen Ballard to this prestigious position in 1996. LTG Ballard is the 1998 Black Engineer of the Year.

White is not only skilled in power generating technologies, power plants and various plant systems, he also pays his career benefits forward by making a difference to society and contributes to STEM causes.

White has been an active role model for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City organization for three years. He and his wife are a "Big Couple" and have been matched with their Little Brother Matthew since 2013.

The couple has fully integrated Matthew into their lives by working on home do-it-yourself projects and family outings. And, just a few months after joining Black & Veatch, the now proposal manager within the Power Generation Services group, decided to volunteer as a house captain for Christmas in October (CIO).

Since then, he has joined the Black & Vetch CIO planning committee as the champion for the company's power business. In this capacity, White has led the way to recruit and plan the annual workday for his team. In 2015, he embraced the challenge of tackling two different properties on the workday.

George White's willingness to give to the community can be traced back to his days at the University of Missouri - Kansas City. There, he was a leader in the Student Mentoring and Recruitment Team (SMART) peer mentoring program and was involved in the KC STEM Alliance, where he was on the advisory board.
