I am very proud and honored to share these news with my network. The American Association of Engineering Societies (AAES) has bestowed this honor to my colleague and dear friend, Saraj Rajala, Dean of Engineering at Iowa State. A dedicated, bright and woman who has been instrumental in the development of both IFEES and GEDC, joins a distinguished group of world-renown individuals including Neil Armstrong, Norm Augustine, Chuck Vest and Wayne Clough.
