Industry Leaders Earn ACE Mentor Program of American Legacy Award


ace-logo.jpgIn December 2006 issue of “Construction Executive” magazine, I came across the following article regarding the ACE Mentor Program:

Preston H. Haskell, chairman of the Haskell Company, received the ACE Mentor Program of America Legacy Award at a recent recognition dinner held in Washington, D.C.

Individuals in the architecture, construction, and engineering industries were recognized for their commitment to mentoring and attracting youth to building-related careers. The ACE Mentor Program is a hands-on, after-school program with teams in 80 cities mentoring more than 5,000 students. Ninety-two percent of the students who participate in the program go on to college.

The Haskell Company works with students at A. Philip Randolph Academies of Technology in Jacksonville, Fla.

Also receiving ACE Legacy Awards were Cesar Pelli, founding principal of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and Charles H. Thornton, chairman of C. H. Thornton & Company and founding partner of Thornton Tomasetti.”

It is great to see industry leaders, like those mentioned above, embrace the ACE Mentor mission.
