BHB Project Manager Joe LaCroix, PE has been named Young Engineer of the Year by the Fort Worth Chapter of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers. This award is presented to individuals less than 34 years old who exhibit outstanding technical ability, have made great professional achievements, and continually support civic and humanitarian activities for their community.
Joe has been a member of the Fort Worth TSPE chapter since 2014. He values the relationships and networking skills he’s gained during that time, as well as the opportunity for interaction with engineers across disciplines. He has been involved with the MATHCOUNTS program for several years, most notably serving as the MATHCOUNTS Coordinator for the chapter this year. Through TSPE, he is also a graduate of the Professional Engineer Leadership Institute (PELI), which he credits with enhanced leadership abilities, new perspectives as both an employee and project manager, and skills for working with younger engineers-in-training. In his community, he is heavily involved with the Boy Scouts, serving as Assistant Scout Master for a local troop for the past seven years.
He has big shoes to fill—amongst the many accomplished local engineers to receive this award is BHB Founder Bill Baird, who received it in 1983.
