Society names Young Engineer of the Year
An engineer in the area has been awarded a “huge” statewide honor by his peers.
The award is given to a society member who has made contributions to the engineering profession and community early in their careers, said Brian Hannon, president, MSPE West Michigan chapter.
“Being selected as the state-level winner, as well as the chapter’s recipient . . . is a huge honor, and Brian is a worthy recipient,” Hannon said.
“His work ethic, professionalism and involvement in both MSPE and other organizations demonstrate the reasons why he was chosen. He has a bright future in the engineering industry.”
Moynihan, a licensed professional engineer in Michigan, is active in the industry and community: he's a member of the MSPE Board of Directors; member of the American Society of Civil Engineers; past president of the Grand Rapids chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute; and has served as a mentor for the Grand Rapids Public Schools Academy of Design & Construction and the Hope College chapter of Engineers Without Borders.
Moynihan holds a B.S. in civil engineering from Michigan Technological University.
