33 Years of Excellence Recognized


Past Presidents' Appreciation Day Press Release

October 10, 2017 - The Montgomery Branch of the Alabama Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers dedicated the October Branch meeting to recognizing the leadership and volunteerism of each of its former Branch presidents. Those leaders, during their time with the Branch, put forth great effort to uphold and enhance the integrity and ethics of the civil engineering profession, while serving engineers and the community in the River Region. By way of our past presidents, the Branch has been able to foster professional interaction between students, younger members, and experienced professionals as well as instill enthusiasm in the profession and Branch membership and involvement. Dr. Dan Turner, P.E., Ph.D, presented each recipient with a certificate of recognition. Dr. Turner is a tireless advocate, promoter, and leader for the transportation engineering profession, and he has the distinction of being the only member of the Alabama Section to serve as the national Society President of ASCE.

The Montgomery Branch of ASCE was established in 1984 with 30 original members, and several of these charter members were on hand to witness the recognition of our past presidents. Thirty-three years later, the Branch continues to be a highly active professional organization within the River Region, largely due to the efforts of these honored individuals. According to Mr. Brian Felder, 2009 Branch President, “It was an honor to be recognized with so many leaders in the ASCE community. In my current job, I have the opportunity to attend and present to ASCE branches throughout Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana, and I can honestly say that the Montgomery Branch is the most organized, well run, and impactful of all of them”.

The Montgomery Branch would like to once again thank each of its former presidents for their service and sacrifice to the Branch, ASCE, and the civil engineering profession. As often quoted, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
