2019 Honor Award Winners

Patron of the Profession

Escambia County School District

The Patron of the Profession Award is given each year to an individual or group of individuals who promote good design and demonstrate a commitment to quality architecture and planning. This year this award is given to Escambia County District Schools.

For years, the Escambia County School District has worked to invest in the built environment with a mentality for building for generations. They are setting records in energy conservation and work to apply technology and building techniques that ensure our children learn in buildings that will last and live efficiently over time. Recently the Escambia County School District sought great design as a resource to teach Escambia children about the natural environment. Their goal was not to just make another assembly building for children but instead they sought a building that would act as a teaching tool, showing Escambia students how the built environment effects the natural environment. We celebrate their efforts to use architecture to better the lives of our students.
