2017 President's Award Winner

2017 President's Award Recipient

Timothy Hawk, FAIA

newsletter Tim AIA Architecture Awars17 230

"Each year, our board of directors bestows the President's Award to a person in recognition of their service to the chapter.  This year's recipient is, in my mind, the consummate professional and leader.  He seems to have been born into the profession, drank the Kool-Aid as a kid, and in the best way possible, walked the walk ever since.  He has connected us with the larger professional universe and brought us to the attention of that universe.  He has encouraged us to become more intelligent, and grow, and chart new territory.  He's a cool head in a crisis, has counseled us and talked us down from the edge on many occasions.  He loves to drive and talk on a road trip.  He's been a great mentor and friend.  I don't know if he's an Eagle Scout, but he kinda seems that type.  I'm pretty sure he'll be president of the United States someday.  Tim Hawk, our President's Award goes to you."

- Joseph Moss, AIA Columbus 2017 Chapter President
