ALEXANDRIA, VA. (July 17, 2020) – The National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) has named Randal Braker, P.E., from Manchester, Tennessee, to its 2020 class of Fellow members. The Fellow membership grade honors those active NSPE members who have demonstrated exemplary and devoted service to their profession, their Society, and their community. Since its establishment in the year 2000, only one percent of all NSPE members have advanced to this highest membership rank.
“Being recognized for your service to the engineering profession, your successful career, and your involvement in NSPE is a great honor and no small feat, especially when that honor is bestowed by your peers,” said Amy Barrett, P.E., F.NSPE, the chairman of the executive committee of the Council of Fellows. “We are proud of this year’s Fellows and their accomplishments and look forward to more great contributions from them in the future.”
A past president of both the Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers and its Tullahoma Chapter, Braker formerly represented Tennessee in the NSPE House of Delegates and currently serves on the NSPE Board of Directors. Also, at the national level, he is an executive committee member of NSPE’s Professional Engineers in Government interest group. Particularly noteworthy, Braker has a sustained interest of more than 30 years in student mentoring. MATHCOUNTS, Engineer-for-a-Day, and Engineers on the Hill are just a few examples of his involvement through TSPE. But he is also invested in two programs within his Tullahoma Chapter — Student Design Competition and FIRST Lego League.Continue reading “Braker Receives Prestigious Honor”
