The Washington D.C. Post of the Society of Military Engineers (SAME) Board of Directors selected David Hostetter for his Outstanding Contributions by a Young Civilian Member.

Hostetter says he focuses on three things in his work: using his engineering skills to make a difference in the world, serving his clients wholeheartedly, and mentoring other young professionals as he was mentored.


Hostetter mentors other young professionals by involving them in hands-on engineering projects which helps them to discover how design impacts installation and operations. They have the opportunity to ask questions and to work with senior level engineers and experienced field staff. Dave learned valuable lessons this way, and he is passing those lessons and best practices on to others.

Hostetter is now the Eastern Regional Manager of SCS RMC®, which stands for remote monitoring and control technology. Several industries use this proven technology for the simultaneous viewing, analysis, alerting, and control of equipment and systems critical to production and safe operations.

Well done, Dave!

Ms. Sharon Bison proudly accepts the Sustaining Member Award presented to SCS Engineers from Col. Kirk Gibbs, Commander, US Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District. Sharon is the outgoing President of the SAME Orange County Post.

We asked Sharon to recount the campaigns that mattered most during her tenure. She responded, “It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve SAME as President of the Orange County Post for the past two years, where I have been able to put my leadership skills to work with a dynamic group of colleagues. Together, we’ve helped to make a positive difference in the lives of nearly a dozen college students who received more than $24,000 in scholarships, and for veterans and their families who benefitted from donations of nearly $60,000 made to Wounded Warriors. The Post has also been of benefit to charities including the American Cancer Society, Project Healing Waters, Armed Forces YMCA, and the Challenged Athlete’s Foundation: Operation Rebound, during my service term.”

Jim Walsh, President, and CEO of SCS Engineers said, “SCS is proud of our staff who share their industry knowledge with associations and share their own time supporting their local communities and non-profit organizations throughout our nation. We thank you for your service and your contributions working toward the betterment of society and the environment.”
