Alex Cavgalar came to the United States in 1993 to study at Wichita State University.

Now, the Turkish-born engineer is building a local high-tech business, and he was recognized at a White House event this week for those efforts.

Cavgalar, who has a doctorate in electrical engineering from WSU and is founder and chief technology officer of Ulterius Technologies, was an Obama administration Champions of Change nominee.

The Champions of Change program is aimed at showcasing groups of Americans -- individuals, businesses and organizations — who the White House said in a news release "are doing extraordinary things to empower and inspire members of their communities."

Cavgalar was nominated by Joni Cobb, CEO of the Pipeline entrepreneurial fellowship program. Cavgalar was one of three Pipeline fellows who were invited to attend the Immigrant Innovators Champions of Change event Wednesday at the White House.
