The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) has announced 12 distinguished members as 2014 WEF Fellows recipients.
“These are some of the finest water quality professionals in action today,” said WEF Executive Director Eileen O’Neill. “The Fellows’ designation recognizes the level of their impact on our profession and its ability to affect public health and the environment.”
The program recognizes member achievements, stature, and contributions in the water profession. WEF Fellows are recognized in various areas of expertise, including but not limited to design, education, operations, regulation, research, utility management, and leadership.
“I consider selection as a WEF Fellow to be a distinct honor for which I am very grateful,” said C.P. Leslie Grady Jr., a WEF member since 1963. “My association with WEF has been a very rewarding experience in many ways,” he added.
WEF has provided Grady with many opportunities to make professional contacts, many of whom have become personal friends, he said.
“WEF played a very big part in my professional life, serving both as an outlet for my research results and as a means by which I could give back to our profession through service,” Grady said. “I always enjoyed my service activities in WEF, and they provided me many opportunities to grow, both professionally and personally.”
The following 2014 Fellows will be recognized during WEFTEC® 2014.
