Each year, the Floodplain Management Association (FMA) honors outstanding people and projects in the floodplain management field. This year, I am happy to announce Steve Sullivan has been awarded FMA’s Award for Excellence! This award recognizes outstanding floodplain management projects, programs, activities, and individuals that epitomize the best in floodplain management.
I can think of no one who deserves this award more than Steve Sullivan. Those of you who know Steve will know what a fantastic asset to Mead & Hunt’s team he is. Not only is Steve a skilled professional who has played a critical role in multiple water infrastructure projects, but he is also a fantastic mentor—a true leader who helps the next generation of professionals gain experience and reach their goals. In this way, Steve has been instrumental in shaping the future of the industry.
Floodplain management plays a vital role in keeping the communities we serve safe. As we face increasing extreme weather events resulting from global climate change, this role becomes more important than ever. Congratulations again, Steve, and a huge thank you goes out to you and all floodplain management professionals for doing your part to help our communities weather any storms they may face—literally and figuratively.
