At this year’s Society of American Military Engineer’s Joint Engineer Training Conference and Expo held in Tampa, Florida, HDR received the J.W. Morris Sustaining Member Award for eminent contributions to SAME. A large contingent of HDR federal engineering and environmental professionals attended the conference this year as exhibitors and sponsors. 

The J.W. Morris Award recognizes the large business member firm who best demonstrated involvement in their local posts; involvement with local, regional, and national leadership positions; support of students interested in science, technology, engineering and math, and support of SAME conferences and publications.

“HDR is the perfect example of a company who understands the value and benefits SAME offers,” said Lt. Col. Scott Prosuch, USA (Ret.), chair of the STEM Committee. “They are committed to supporting the society at every level.”

SAME unites public and private sector individuals and organizations from across the architecture, engineering, construction, environmental and facility management industry. HDR’s affiliation with SAME represents more than 49 consecutive years as a sustaining member firm. It includes nearly 200 employees in 39 posts around the world, where they are actively engaged as leaders and members.

“Being involved in SAME is a very valuable experience,” said Jackie Hacker, HDR small business director. “Our team members around the world are able to grow professionally, develop as leaders and create relationships within the industry that will last their entire careers.”
