Butler, Rosenbury & Partners welcomed Collin Tucker, Student Architectural Intern, and Amber Summers, Intern Architect, to our team of design professionals this summer.
Collin, who is from Troy, MO, will be a fifth-year Architecture student at Drury University. He will graduate next May with a Master of Architecture. At Drury, he has studied abroad in Venice, Italy and Amsterdam, Netherlands during summer 2016, and is a member of the Kappa Alpha Fraternity.
Amber, originally from North Kansas City, MO, graduated from Kansas State University in 2018 with a Master of Architecture and minor in regional and community planning. While attending K-State, she was an ambassador for the College of Architecture, Planning and Design. She was also a member of APDPro, a professional development program, and a design studio mentor for second-year students. She worked with the economic development office of Clay Center, KS to create a downtown revival plan, and was a member of the Design + Make studio.
Amber was a member of the architectural honors society, Tau Sigma Delta, and was a finalist for the Kremer Design Competition for graduate architecture students. She also studied abroad in Orvieto, Italy for a semester.
