Engineers' Club Presents Inaugural Mulford Volunteerism Awards

On June 19, the Engineers' Club presented the inaugural Mulford Volunteerism Awards to Colette Montague, PE of Urban Engineers, Inc. and Kathryn P. Russo, PE, PTOE of Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson, Inc.

The Board of the Engineers’ Club created the Mulford Volunteerism Award, to be presented for exemplary service to the Club or Philadelphia Engineering Foundation. The award was named to honor Richard A. Mulford, PE, one of the key volunteers who has served in many and various roles in both the Club and Foundation since the 1950's, including his tenure as the volunteer Executive Director of the Club for nearly 20 years starting in the early 1990's. He continues his service today as a Director Emeritus of the Club.

Ms. Montague was instrumental in the production of the Newspapers in Education supplement Build Your Future With a Career in Engineering, coordinating with 15 area technical societies who provided the financial support and content and with the Philadelphia Inquirer. You can see the results of her efforts on the Club’s website. She also assisted with the Engineering in the City Tour.

Ms. Russo worked with the Franklin Institute in the production of the Engineering in the City Tour, coordinating with the 11 area technical societies who provided the financial support and content. Signs highlighting various engineering sites around Center City were posted in time for the Tour introduction during Delaware Valley Engineers Week. Information on the tour, including copies of the signs, is available on the Foundation’s website. Ms. Russo was not able to attend the meeting and will be presented her award later.
