Project manager Lauren Swett received the President’s Award from the Maine Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers this week. The award is given at the discretion of the Section’s president for outstanding service to the Maine Section of ASCE as a board member, mentor, and Maine ambassador on the regional and national level.
Lauren is a Licensed Professional Engineer who works on site-civil design and environmental engineering projects for both municipal and private clients. With experience primarily in designing and cost estimating for roadways, trails, stormwater systems, and landfills, she is also responsible for permitting, construction oversight, and technical report writing for a variety of projects.
In a letter to Woodard & Curran, ASCE president Mark Woodson writes: “On behalf of the American Society of Civil Engineers, it gives me great pleasure to acknowledge Lauren Swett for her extraordinary contributions to our organization and to the betterment of civil engineers. Lauren has served on numerous ASCE committees, most recently being the Leader Training Committee. Through her tireless efforts, she just completed the execution of three Leadership Conferences for our volunteer officers from coast to coast. Not only did her attention to detail and organizational skills contribute to the success of each program, but her own leadership skills allowed her to provide oversight while effectively delegating responsibilities to her peers and other volunteers.
We personally want to thank you for supporting Lauren's dedicated service to ASCE and helping make this organization stronger, vibrant, and more prosperous for the civil engineering community and the society at large.”
The American Society of Civil Engineers represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 177 countries. Founded in 1852, ASCE is the nation’s oldest engineering society.
