  • Richard Handy ('51 B.S. geology, '53 M.S. geology, '56 Ph.D. civil engineering, Anson Marston Distinguished Professor Emeritus) - “'Being 70 doesn’t make me an antique!' That’s what I said regarding my new textbook on foundation engineering. It was published Jan. 10, 2020, by McGraw-Hill. I also recently retired as president of a company that makes soil and rock test instruments invented at Iowa State. Maybe it will give me more time for writing.”
  • Robert Britson ('73 M.E. civil engineering) - "Engineers are vital to protecting the public safety. The damage of Hurricane Michael here in Panama City was a microcosm of the destruction created from the Florida Gulf Coast well into Georgia. It illustrated how advances in engineering education and design have improved outcomes for structures in natural disasters."
  • Brian Laartz ('84 B.S. civil engineering) - ENR’s regional editors have recognized Brian with the magazine’s 2019 Colorado Legacy Award.
  • Rebekkah (Nelson) Standt (‘06 civil engineering) has been named Young Engineer of the Year for the Texas Chapter of the American Public Works Association, Southeast Branch.
