Abraham El Receives President’s Dedicated Service Award
Abraham El of Pennoni’s Philadelphia, PA office received the recent Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers (PSPE) President’s Dedicated Service Award at the PSPE Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA. Abraham is a member of the civil engineering, site design, landscape and architecture team in our headquarters.
Tom Friese, Philadelphia Chapter of PSPE Past-President and State Director, states, “The award recognizes Abe for his tireless efforts running MathCounts at the local and State levels, as well as other volunteer work mentoring students and chairing the Advisory Board of Directors for the Philadelphia Spark program—a national organization partnered with six schools in North and West Philadelphia and nearly 25 Corporate Partners, including Pennoni, with the goal of encouraging students into STEM fields. Abe truly cares about our youth and promoting their interest in and excitement about STEM education. This is exactly the type of commitment and caring for which Pennoni wants to be known.”
Abe is a member of the Philadelphia Chapter of PSPE. Ed Pluciennik, a PSPE Board member and colleague of Abe at Pennoni, has this to say: “Abe is a wonderful human being, committed to his family, his profession, and society. He unselfishly gives of himself through his commitment of service to professional societies, to youth outreach in STEM and to the public in the practice of his profession. He is a true gentleman, exhibiting humility and respect for all and integrity and professionalism in his every endeavor. We at Pennoni are proud to have him as an example and an inspiration.”
Abe is married with twins and living in the Greater Philadelphia area, where he has been a true example of a caring community member, a leader, and an advocate for young children and STEM.
