Last year, Jimmy Messick, Project Manager (Fort Lauderdale- Engineering) received the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) of Broward 2017 Young Engineer of the Year Award. This award recognizes engineers who have taken an initiative to advance their profession; exhibited technical competence, high character, and integrity; developed improved member attitudes toward the profession; and contributed to public service outside his/her professional career. Jimmy continues to exemplify these traits on a daily basis. Within the engineering department, he takes a dynamic role in seeking out his professional growth. He willingly takes on new projects and other professional responsibilities, he is actively involved in CGA’s business development efforts as a project manager and team leader in responding to RFQ’s, and he has committed significant personal time and effort toward ASCE and Florida Engineering Society (FES). In addition to his dedication at the office, Jimmy is an active participating member of the Engineering Community: he frequently attends meetings and participates in events hosted by the American Public Works Association (APWA), Construction Association of South Florida (CASF), Broward 2-1-1, and the YMCA. Other ways that Jimmy is involved in the engineering community is by serving as a judge at the Annual Water Tower Competition at FAU held by The American Water Works Association (AWWA), Florida Section -Region VI. Through these efforts, Jimmy has demonstrated his commitment to his desire for professional growth. He is a very productive and engaged member of the Engineering Profession and represents the profession extraordinarily well at numerous activities throughout the year. He is well-deserving of this award, and the CGA family extends our congratulations to him for his recent accomplishment and recognition.
