2010 Officers and Advisors


President • Jeremy Searle

Jeremy, now in his last semester, is nearing that mystical point known as graduation. Throughout his career at BYU he has lived with the natives in the Andes Mountains of Peru, analyzed traffic in the streets of Zacatecas, Mexico, and hiked to Monkey Mountain in Hong Kong, where he was consequently eaten alive by mosquitos . . . and monkeys. During that time he ate everything from alpaca to frog. Sea kayaking in the channel islands and eating fortune cookies in the world's first fortune cookie shop in San Francisco are things that Jeremy enjoys doing. Walking along the Great Wall of China and taking a boat up the Yangtzi river are also favorite pastimes. All these things and more await you as a member of ITE. (*Final Statement not Guaranteed*)

Our President has a boatload of responsibilities. Here are just a few:

  • Calling, planning, and conducting meetings
  • Coordinating all of the other officers' efforts
  • Representing ITE to BYUSA and other external organizations
  • Making sure that deadlines are met and things run smoothly

Vice President • Aaron Wilson

Aaron is a graduate student focusing on Transportation. The topic of his thesis is "Evaluation of the Effectiveness of a Variable Advisory Speed System on Queue Mitigation in Work Zones." Aaron is also interested in materials such as asphalt and concrete.

Although much of his time is taken up with research and class work, he still takes time to play softball any chance he gets.

As Vice President, Aaron is responsible for

  • Organizing grant proposals and submitting them to ITE in order to fund the BYU Chapter
  • Assisting our President with any legitimate request

Treasurer • Alexander Lovett

Alexander is a Senior focusing on Transportation. He works as a TA for the Surveying and Materials courses, and he works on manuals for the Surveying lab and its equipment.

Alexander's job includes

  • Monitoring Chapter finances
  • Purchasing supplies for Chapter activities
  • Photographing Chapter events

Secretary and Website "Guru" • Bradley Mecham

Bradley is a first-year graduate student, currently focusing on Structures. While he spends much of his time doing his own research and coursework, because of his Computer Science degree he has also been busy helping several other students with the computer-intensive aspects of their research. He gets excited about most civil engineering subjects, particularly trains, city layouts, and subway systems.

Bradley is an Ultimate Frisbee enthusiast and plays regularly with the collegiate-level team in Provo.

As Secretary and website "guru", his responsibilities include the following:

  • Compile and submit the Annual Report
  • Obtain and publish information on available scholarships
  • Work to get BYUSA "Approved" status for BYU ITE
  • Create and maintain the Chapter's website

Service Coordinator • Brad Brimley

Brad is a fifth-year student at BYU, and is set for graduating from the bachelor’s and master’s programs this April. The topic of his thesis is developing crash prediction models for rural roads in Utah. Brad enjoys hiking during the summer months and playing racquetball any chance he gets.

As Service Coordinator, Brad is in charge of organizing service activities, including our semiannual highway cleanup.

Student Coordinator • Steven Dudley

Steven is a senior civil engineering student from Magrath, Alberta, Canada. Although he finds all areas of civil engineering interesting, he finds transportation planning particularly appealing. Steven is currently working on transportation safety research with Dr. Schultz. He plans on attending graduate school after completing his bachelor's degree in December 2010.

Steven enjoys the outdoors, running, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.

The Student Coordinator is basically the most important officer. His job is to

  • Make weekly announcements in Undergraduate Seminar
  • Make sure our activities get on the Announcement Sheet
  • Create any necessary posters or advertisements
  • Set up field trips
