Alumnus Wins National Citizen Engineer Award

January 6, 2004

Scott Berman, an engineer with Halff Associates in Fort Worth, will receive one of four 2003 Citizen Engineer Awards presented by the American Society of Civil Engineers in recognition of his public service accomplishments. Berman received a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington in December 2001.

The Citizen Engineer Award recognizes individuals (1) who have become known to their community as a result of the efforts that they have expended as volunteers; (2) who have significantly influenced local public policy or legislative affairs; or (3) whose activities have improved the image of the civil engineering profession through their personal involvement in public-serving endeavors. This award is given separately in each of the four ASCE zones.

Berman was cited specifically for his work on the revitalization of the public pool facility in Bedford, the Habitat for Humanity project on landscaping a low income house in Fort Worth, and his organization of the “Boo at the Zoo” program at the Fort Worth Zoo, as well as numerous other activities have all helped meet the special needs of the citizens in the community.

Berman will receive the award February 14 in Chicago during the President’s Luncheon at the Leadership Conference of the American Society of Civil Engineers for Zone III.
