Kenneth Rennick, a 2008 graduate of MCHS and son of Tom and Georgena Rennick, of Cortez, recently graduated with a master’s degree in engineering and technology management from Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colo.
His studies focused on understanding how to integrate multiple disciplines with an emphasis on the relationship between the disciplines of petroleum engineering, geology, geophysics and economics. The pinnacle of this study was his management of an undergraduate petroleum senior design class for two years that consisted of more than 180 students and assistants from multiple disciplines.
Kenny plans to work for Crystal River Oil and Gas LLC as a petroleum engineer located in Basalt, Colo., starting this summer. The position consists of managing the operations of multiple wells, including wells in the Four Comers region. He also hopes to stay involved with Colorado School of Mines as an adjunct faculty member and/or earn another master’s degree in petroleum engineering or geophysics.
