Outreach Co-Chairs


Rachel Zeringue

I’m really excited to continue being your outreach chair for my last year at LSU! I am a biological engineering major and robotics minor who watches too many tv shows for my own good. Otherwise I will be working out, knitting, or applying to graduate schools.


Lea Peters grew up in Woodstock, Georgia and moved to Baton Rouge in 2015 to pursue her undergraduate degree in Petroleum Engineering. Since arriving at LSU she has become an active member in the Society of Petroleum Engineers, Kids Hope USA, Tau Beta Pi, and the Society of Peer Mentors. She joined the Society of Peer Mentors in 2016 with the hope of gaining new leadership and communication skills to promote STEM fields. This upcoming summer Lea will be a petroleum engineering intern for Hilcorp Energy Company. In her spare time, Lea enjoys walking the LSU lakes and spending time with friends.
