Vytau Virskus Receives State and National Awards
Classmate Vytau Virskus (and his Millenium Energy Company) recently received state and national awards for his energy project.
The first Award for the Project of the Year for the Dearborn HVAC Infrastructure and Energy Initiative was a state award from the American Public Works Association. That award was presented at the Grand Traverse Resort on October 13th collectively to the City of Dearborn and its design team which included Millenium Energy.
The second award was from the Association of Energy Engineers, a worldwide organization. It turned out to be an auspicious event at the AEE International Energy Conference on October 19th. Vytau found himself in pretty good company with other Projects of the Year (3M Company, Toyota Corporation, Cal Tech, and NASA).
Vytau notes: "Being born in a refugee camp in Southern Germany, arriving in the US on a Liberty Ship with my parents, processing through Ellis Island, and then growing up in Flint while attending a little school like St. Mike's...it was an honor and my great fortune to find myself included in such an august group."
