While overseeing the construction of 42 new schools and over $1 billion of capital improvements over the last 17 years, he has always made quality architectural design of our schools a priority. His work to improve the quality of the built environment for the 140,000 students in Montgomery County has benefited students, parents, and community and is sincerely appreciated by the architects of Maryland and the AIA Potomac Valley Chapter.”
