On Thursday, March 21, 2013, Gobbell Hays Partners’ own Chairman, Steve M. Hays, PE, CIH, FAIHA, was inducted into Vanderbilt University School of Engineering’s prestigious Academy of Distinguished Alumni. Mr. Hays joins 56 other Distinguished Alumni members, which have been honored by Vanderbilt’s highly-regarded School of Engineering. According to the Academy of Distinguished Alumni Celebration Dinner program:
The newest members of the Academy of Distinguished Alumni have left their marks on their professions and the field of engineering. They have provided expertise to companies all over the world, taught and mentored hundreds of engineers, and led innovation in the global shipping industry. Their achievements are truly worthy of our recognition.
Recipients of this award, first given in 1969, must have attended or graduated from the School of Engineering. The honorees are chosen by a committee which is composed of the dean of the School of Engineering, alumni representatives, and members of the faculty and staff in the School of Engineering.
This great recognition by Vanderbilt University’s School of Engineering comes on the heels of Mr. Hays receiving the National Institute of Building Science’s 2012 Mortimer M. Marshall Lifetime Achievement Award.
Mr. Hays’ accolades for his work to improve the built environment are very well-deserved, and we at GHP Environmental + Architecture send out our congratulations to Mr. Hays for his induction into Vanderbilt University School of Engineering’s Academy of Distinguished Alumni!
