Student Detail

I was born on May 29th, 1985 in Logan, Utah to Don and Debbie Buehler.  I grew up in Malad, Idaho, a rural town in the southeastern part of the state.  When I turned 8 years old, my father began assigning me specific tasks on the family wheat farm in Daniels Valley, located 20 miles northwest of Malad, to teach me to appreciate the value of physical labor.  I developed a strong work ethic through activities such as hauling rocks, building fences, sweeping grain bins, and driving and servicing farm equipment. 

Following my freshman year of college I served a two-year LDS mission in Cape Town, South Africa.  Upon returning, I resumed my education at BYU.  I am currently a senior in Brigham Young University’s Civil Engineering Department and will graduate with my bachelor’s degree in August of 2010.  After receiving my undergraduate degree in civil engineering, I plan to pursue a master’s degree in Hydrology.  Following my post-undergraduate education I will enter the work force and prepare to accomplish my next goal—passing the Professional Engineer Exam. 

                 Last spring I participated in BYU’s Globalization Study Abroad in Nanjing, China and had a wonderful experience.  I love to travel and learn about other cultures and look forward to participating in the Mexico Engineering Study Abroad this semester.
