Van Buren County resident Casey Scoggins knew since sixth grade he wanted to be a civil engineer and remembers from an early age being awed by works of the craft.At a recent Tennessee Valley Authority board meeting, Scoggins was presented with TVA’s highest engineering distinction, the Ike Zeringue Engineer of the Year Award.“This award is a great honor,” said Scoggins, a Warren County High School graduate. “I appreciate the confidence of those in transmission engineering who nominated me.”Scoggins, a civil engineering graduate from Tennessee Tech, manages Substation Physical Engineering for TVA’s transmission group.With nearly 15 years experience, he currently leads a team of engineers and design technicians responsible for civil and electrical physical engineering, high-voltage equipment, and design standards for TVA substation and switchyard facilities.Like engineering, TVA was in Scoggins’ blood.“I grew up about a mile from Great Falls Dam and was able to tour the generating facility as a Boy Scout.” Scoggins said.
