Sarah Poole/News Cameron Keaton, Knox County Engineer, enjoys making the lives of Ohioans safer and simpler through his work in civil engineering.


MOUNT VERNON — The field of engineering is intricately woven into the fabric of our everyday lives.

“If you think about it, anything and everything you think of at some point in time probably had an engineer involved in it,” Knox County Engineer Cameron Keaton told the News. “From that chair, to that door, to that car you’re driving, to the road you’re driving on, to the water that gets to your house, there’s an engineer involved at some point in time.”

According to Keaton, engineers are, in a nut-shell, individuals who use math and science to solve problems to make life easier and safer for people. And that is exactly what he has dedicated his life toward: Making the lives of Ohioans safer and simpler through his work in civil engineering, comprised of the designing and construction of roads, bridges, and water treatment plants.
