Jeff Kinneeveauk, President/CEO of ASRC Energy Services, has been named 2012 Professional of the Year by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES). Kinneeveauk will be presented the award during the 34th AISES Annual National Conference, to be held Nov. 1-3 in Anchorage, Alaska.

An Iñupiaq Eskimo from Point Hope, Alaska, Kinneeveauk took over as AES president and CEO in early 2011, rising through the ranks after starting with the company upon graduation from Northwest Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Arts in physics with an emphasis in engineering in 1997.

Kinneeveauk is the third Iñupiat Eskimo to receive AISES’s top award for overall leadership and technical achievement. Lorena Hegdal, who grew up in Nome, received it in 2007 and Richard “Savik” Glenn from Barrow received this significant award in 2004.

AISES was formed in 1977 to increase American Indian and Alaska Native participation in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.

Always proud and in full support of any Alaskan Inupiaq that has accomplished so much in their lives with the focus of helping their own people and for being great examples for the youth. Proud of you for your great accomplishments, Jeff! If you have a spare moment, you should come to Kivalina on career day and speak to the young people. They need to see how it's done. They need to see how much they themselves can accomplish through hard work and dedication! :) Sorry, I am an avid advocate for our young people but it's pretty hard to get support for our efforts here. Proud of you!
