Mississippi State EcoCAR 2: Team Leader Profile

Mississippi State University’s EcoCAR 2 team recently welcomed a new team leader, Lee Sargent.

Lee is an undergraduate student majoring in electrical engineering. He is a junior and is in his third year on the EcoCAR 2 team. Not many undergraduate students are given the opportunity to lead such a large team in this capacity, but Lee has earned the full support of its members.

When he is not working on EcoCAR 2, he can usually be found pumping iron in the gym or drinking protein shakes. He is also a chicken nugget enthusiast who loves to frequent the on-campus Chick-Fil-A. Other hobbies of his include converting old school buses into RVs for fun.

There is more to Lee than just an undergrad engineer. The team’s first video blog of Year Three featured him because he will always be known as the boy who became a legend.
