Meet Sal Qasim, an engineer who is the North American Young Generation in Nuclear chapter president at Grand Gulf Nuclear Station. NAYGN is an organization with the mission to “develop leaders to energize the future of nuclear.”

Qasim, who has worked at the station for three years, said his favorite part of working at Grand Gulf are the opportunities and enthusiasm for professional career development.

"I like that Grand Gulf takes the time to develop my professional career,” said Qasim. “Since starting my job here, I have been able to benchmark other sites, go to conferences and trainings and step into leadership roles."

Qasim’s team works to monitor system health and develop preventative maintenance strategies to improve equipment reliability.  As the NAYGN president, he wants to build a chapter that allows nuclear professionals to develop into leaders and network across the industry. He also wants to be able to give back to the community through the organization.
