Alumna honored by Corps of Engineers

Alumna Dr. Rumanda K. Young was honored with the Lt. Gen. John W. Morris Civilian of the Year Award by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

A story on the DVIDS site notes that the award “recognizes the employee who individually has made the most significant and noteworthy contributions to the mission, reputation and prestige of the Corps of Engineers – including significant participation in areas outside the workplace – in the past calendar year.”

Young is chief of the Master Planning Section of the Corps’ Fort Worth District Regional Planning and Environmental Center and the regional energy program manager for the Corps’ Southwestern Division in Dallas.

The story includes a statement from Col. Charles H. Klinge, the Corps’ Fort Worth District Commander, “Dr. Young’s pioneering work in master planning and resource management, and her teaching and mentorship of students and staff, represent a new generation of leadership that is advancing the Department of Defense energy sustainment mission.”

Young holds a Master of City and Regional Planning degree and a doctorate in Urban Planning and Public Policy from SUPA. She teaches at UTA and Southern Methodist University.

Congratulations to Dr. Young on the award!
