Lindsay Davis, '15

Lindsay Davis 2020 Nelson Distinguished Young Alumni honoree.

Lindsay Davis is a 2015 graduate from WVU Tech with a bachelor’s of science in chemical engineering. After graduation, Lindsay spent a year as a chemical process engineer in Kentucky before moving to Georgia in support of her husband, Robin. In Georgia, Lindsay has become a corrosion engineer for the University of Dayton Research Institute. Lindsay works in the United States Air Force Corrosion Prevention and Control Office at Robins Air Force Base, serving each weapons system in the US Air Force as the lead corrosion engineer for UDRI. In 2019, Lindsay graduated with a Masters in Engineering Management with certifications in Systems Engineering and Design of Experiments from the University of Dayton.

Lindsay has a passion for aerospace and astrospace operations. While attending WVU Tech, she interned at the NASA Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, and still dreams of someday being an astronaut. Her favorite part about her current job is the ability to work with every airframe, and at every level from base maintenance to the Office of the Secretary of Defense. Her particular favorites are the bomber aircraft. Lindsay is primarily responsible for the drafting of military specifications, the drafting and execution of test plans relating to corrosion research, and serving as a representative of the office at national conferences.

While at WVU Tech, Lindsay served in student government, was an active member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority, wrote for the Tech Collegian and worked as a resident assistant, among many other activities. Lindsay was awarded the Presidential Leadership Award during her class’s commencement ceremony. After college, Lindsay still proudly serves her national sorority as a writer for the magazine, THE ANCHOR, has become a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and has joined her Scottish heritage clan, Clan MacDougall.

Born in New York and raised in Virginia, Lindsay currently lives an hour and a half south of Atlanta, Georgia with her husband, a 2013 WVU Tech graduate. She enjoys running (having completed the 2019 Chicago Marathon), traveling and reading voraciously. While not a West Virginia native, a piece of Lindsay will always call West Virginia home.
