"Dickinson reminds us that we need to do in this industry, which is to work tirelessly domestically and aboard for the great purpose of all.”
The Peruvian born CEO was humbled when he was tapped by the recognized national organization with grassroots tentacles within the community. "It is a true honor to receive such a prestigious award. Those that came before me were trailblazers, and to be considered one among them is truly humbling,” states Dickinson and continues; "It is important that children see us in zenith of success so they to believe as I did when I was their age, that with faith, hard work, and perseverance all is possible no matter where they come from despite the what of their skin, or their accent,” declares Dickinson.
One of Jaime Dickinson’s proudest moments was to be able to provide infrastructure to a rural region of Colombia, which is riddled with poverty, and drug infested crimes. The challenges faced by his organization were monstrous but more importantly the success that came out of the project was eternal. Jaime Dickinson will also have an opportunity to share with participants some of his experiences and insight in the industry as a panelist earlier in the day during the conference and award a scholarship to a young and aspiring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) student.
