A Louisiana State University graduate, Eddie Veal started working at Shell Norco directly out of college.

“Last year I was the president of our new professionals network and I’m involved in community service development events for young engineers,” he said. “I was involved in the campus community at LSU and I now oversee the career fair there. I’m also on the mechanical engineering advisory committee for Shell.”

Veal said he knows that growing up with both parents as engineers gave him a leg up in being exposed to scientific careers early on.

“I really want to make sure that other people who look like me know that they can be successful and have the support system that they need,” he said.


In college Veal gained elementary school teaching experience, which he said has shaped his community involvement now.

“I knew that I wanted to give back,” he said. “I think it’s important to make sure that you’re giving back in your community.”

Veal started a program in Baton Rouge that brings math, STEM and robotics lessons to kids in kindergarten through twelfth grade.

“We’re just trying to develop competencies and help out where kids need help,” he said of the Louisiana Leadership Institute. “We’re just trying to encourage kids that school is important and opening up that avenue to teach kids that STEM is cool and not only can you make a good living from it –  but that you can have fun and solve problems.”
