ENR's Top Young Professionals program honors 20 individuals under 40 years of age in each region who have shown extraordinary leadership and service throughout their career.
Firms from across the Texas/Louisiana region submitted approximately 50 entries into this year’s contest—from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas. These individuals are then judged by three primary criteria: industry experience and education; career and industry leadership; and community service and involvement.
We’d like to thank this year's esteemed judging panel for all their efforts in identifying this year's honorees: Daniel Albus, Associate, Treatment, Parkhill Smith & Cooper; Kelly Carpenter, Director of Education, Pelican Chapter, Associated Builders & Contractors; Kristi M. Grizzle Gollwitzer, Principal, Walter P Moore; Jing Johnson, President, Prism Renderings; and Cara Lanigan, Vice President, Clark Construction.
Our 2019 class of Top Young Professionals (in alphabetical order by first name) follow. Please be sure to read more about these rising young professionals in the February 11 issue of ENR Texas & Louisiana. Congratulations!
