Trent Turner, a senior in civil engineering, was named the winner of the 2005-2006 Chi Epsilon Southern District Scholarship. Turner is now one of 12 students from across the country competing for one of Chi Epsilon's national scholarships. This is the fourth consecutive year that a member from the Auburn University chapter has received this award for the southern district, which stretches from South Carolina to Louisiana.

Chi Epsilon is a national civil engineering honor society with 127 chapters at major engineering universities across the United States. Headquartered at the University of Texas at Arlington, the organization works to develop not only exceptional civil engineers but upstanding members of society as well. The Auburn University chapter, founded in 1938, is one of the nation's oldest.
