Every year the Engineering News-Record (ENR) regional editions celebrate the excellence of young construction professionals. Each region highlights 20 individuals under the age of 40 who represent the “best of the best” in their construction and design careers by giving back to their industry and communities. This year, Dr. Raissa Ferron, Assistant Professor in Structural Engineering, was named one of the 2016 Top 20 Under 40 winners for Engineering News-Record (ENR) in the Texas & Louisiana region.  Dr. Ferron is the only academic to receive the award in 2016 (as was Dr. Fernanda Leite when she was named to the 2015 list). CTR is delighted to see that Dr. Ferron is being recognized for her impressive contributions to the construction industry and the communities that it serves.  In response to news of this honor, CAEE Department Chair Rich Corsi congratulated Dr. Ferron by noting that “Your efforts benefit both society and our entire CAEE community!”
