Challenge X: Beth Lowery

The longest thesis in the world.

Beth Lowery Vice President, GM Environment, Energy & Safety Policy, waved the checkered flag in Washington DC at the final Challenge X competition.

Four years ago Challenge X started and Beth Lowery was there. Each year Lowery has watched these teams go through the paces. General Motors has an embedded engineer with each team and by the end of the challenge they will have hired almost sixty of the university students.

I’ve been with Lowery on many events and she is always enthusiastic, but it’s the University students that really excite her.

They are the bright light to our future.
