Raabe graduates from Texas A&M
Lily Raabe of Three Oaks has graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in nuclear engineering and a minor in radiological health engineering in December 2013.
After interning at Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant in Glen Rose, Texas, for three summers, she will begin a full-time position as part of the Design Engineering Analysis group in January 2014. Lily became interested in nuclear energy when she researched alternative energy sources for her high school debate team and became convinced that nuclear energy will have to play a large role in the future energy portfolio as a source of clean, reliable, affordable, and safe electricity.
At Texas A&M, Lily was part of the officer team that restarted a chapter of Women in Nuclear (WIN). She has been very active in WIN, serving as a member of the National Communications Committee, chapter representative for the National Leading Group, and in multiple chapter officer positions. She has also been involved in the American Nuclear Society, attending many national conferences for both organizations. Lily was part of the team that hosts Nuclear Science Merit Badge workshops for Girl and Boy Scouts, serving as director of the program last year. She served one semester as a member of the Nuclear Engineering Student Advisory Council, one as an Aggie Muster host, and another semester as the Society of Women Engineers’ representative to the Student Engineering Council.
Lily was also involved at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, serving as a Eucharistic minister and retreat staffer. This summer, Lily participated in the Nuclear Engineering Department’s three-week study abroad program in China, which included a week of classes at Harbin Engineering University, tours of industry facilities, and sightseeing in Beijing.
She is the daughter of Kevin and Rebecca Raabe and granddaughter of Evelyn Raabe.
Lily is a graduate of Poth High School.
