The AIACC is proud to announce the 2013 AEP Awards Program recipients. The jury convened in October to comb through all applicants and decided on the following:

Chapter Award: AIA Pasadena & Foothill. This chapter has an inclusive approach to Emerging Professionals, resulting in engagement from the community as well as the design arena.

Firm Mentorship Award: Lionakis, a firm known to actively connect the Emerging Professionals within the organization to a wide range of resources to enrich development and further enhance the architecture arena and society as a whole.

Student Leader Award: Keko AlRamah. She has demonstrated an early commitment to her profession and contributions and achievements have already been observed in her community. She currently attends West Valley College in Saratoga.

Educator Award: Gary McGavin, AIA Jurors agreed McGavin embodies the idea that architectural success is enhanced when one sees the calling as part of a well-rounded life, and imparts this on his students. He is on faculty at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona.

Associate Award: Haley Gipe, Assoc. AIA. Jurors noted there is not a single aspect of associate activities connected to AIA that she has not touched on a national scale and all should look forward to her contributions in the future. Gipe is an intern at Darden Architects in Fresno.

Young Architect Award:
