Emily Machado is an amazing young woman who we have had the pleasure of sponsoring for some years. Here are her words, “Because of your wonderful sponsorship I was able to have another amazing rodeo season. With your support and my hard work I was able to win the All-Around Cowgirl and be the Goat Tying Champion. I also earned a spot into the State Finals in Bishop, CA in the Breakaway Roping, Team Roping, Goat Tying, and the Cutting event. I hope I can reach my goal and make it to the Nationals in Gillette, Wyoming.”

SHN’s Safety Committee awarded Mike the title of 2016 Safety Champion plus a $100 Visa gift card. Over 16 years, Mike has been safely working in a wide range of fields efforts at SHN, including drilling, excavations, confined space entry, mines, and asbestos and lead sampling and monitoring, without an accident or injury or lost work time. That’s over 33,000 hours! He is consistently safety vigilant, making sure that we are aware of near misses and close calls, and that we address conditions that created those potential problems. Mike has recently taken responsibility for the safety program of our Redding office, working with Max Kaufman in our Eureka office, and Mike Foget, our Corporate Health and Safety Manager.
Welcome back to another nose-to-the-grindstone semester/quarter!

Here are some things to think about when you’re waiting for that numeric modeling program to run.
A career is an individual’s journey of learning and work, and whether SHN is a quick side-trip or a long and rewarding segment depends on the similarities of our future paths. SHN’s path is one that values enhancing our communities and creating a rewarding environment for employees and shareholders. We value team work, life-long learning, and family, health and work balance.
SHN geologists investigated a known fault system to determine potential seismic hazards to the dam. Trenchscan technology was used to record images that were later digitally merged to create a single image of the entire trenched area.
Beginning in 2012, SHN’s Biologist of Record managed a crew of 30 biologists that identified nesting locations of birds, prepared and implemented salmonid relocation and dewatering plans, conducted Northern Spotted Owl surveys, and prepared daily and quarterly reports documenting the interactions between construction activities and regulated biological resources.
Since 1995, SHN has performed environmental site investigation, hydrology studies, surveys, permitting, remediation design, and infrastructure evaluation and repair designs at 46 sites for CAL FIRE, the California state agency for real estate services (DGS-RESD), and the Division of the State Architect.
With Ann Baker Landscape Architecture, SHN assisted in the design of the Museum’s new outdoor nature education facility, incorporating stormwater wetlands and bioretention areas, and encouraging groundwater recharge with infiltration trenches and permeable pavements.
