Environmental Engineer Matthew Waldrip, a Medford native and Medford High School and Westfield State University graduate, was named a 2017 Ascending Leader according to the Environmental Business Council of New England! The award, which recognizes young, ascending professionals in the energy and environmental sectors, is given to recipients who are leaders within their respective companies, managing high-profile projects and providing mentorship to their peers – all while staying active in their community.
Matt, who says he jumped at the opportunity to work at Eversource when he had the chance, has been part of our team for a little over two years. One of his favorite projects was: Designing and Constructing Eastern Box Turtle nesting areas along our rights-of-way! “This effort helps balance our need for access to maintain our facilities and serve our customers, while encouraging turtle nesting at a safe distance from the access road,” he says. Way to go Matt!
