At the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) Potomac Section dinner held on May 17, 2017, T3 Senior Engineer, Cerasela M. Cristei, was presented with the President’s Award for her service to the organization over the past year. This award was presented by outgoing president, Anis Shaikh, to Cerasela in recognition and appreciation for her dedication in supporting the Potomac Section while she served as first vice president. Executive positions are voluntary, and Cerasela will now assume the role of president for the next one-year term.
The President’s Award is granted annually at the discretion of the ASHE president and is intended to reward exceptional effort on behalf of the association. Cerasela’s tireless efforts to support ASHE involve a significant investment of her personal time to organize event guest speakers, help coordinate the golf tournament, find volunteers to help run the scholarship program, inspire students to join the monthly meetings, write articles for the newsletter and support the president in a myriad of other activities required to fulfill the mission of the organization and continue to serve our industry. Cerasela’s knack for cheerfully completing a long list of tasks that require constant energy and follow up make her a natural selection for this award.
