|Outstanding Engineer of the Year.|
The TSPE Outstanding Engineer of the Year Award is the highest honor given to an individual TSPE member. The selection process considers education, licenses, professional and technical society activities, engineering and career achievements, and civic, humanitarian, and social activities. Candidates must be citizens of Texas. Eligibility is restricted to engineers whose sustained and unusual contributions have improved the public welfare and the advancement of the profession.
Since the inception of the award at the state level, only two previous winners earned engineering degrees from Texas Tech University. Dr. Earnest Gloyna, a 1946 civil engineering graduate who served as dean of engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, and Dr. Jimmy Smith, a 1962 and 1963 civil engineering graduate who served as professor of civil engineering at Texas Tech, previously received the award.

Team members from Texas Tech included Angie Fealy, Jessica Fox, Devan Glover, Michelle Liner, Wade Morrison, Brennan Plemons, Casey Ramsey, Alan Salazar, Marian Schwarz, and Tyson Stagner.
Approximately 350 students representing 16 schools from Texas and Mexico competed in the 2014 competition. At the annual contest, participants build canoes with concrete and are judged in four categories: technical design report, oral design presentation, canoe final product and racing. The winning team represents the ASCE Texas Section and advances to the national competition.
