Lysne named ACEC 2018 Young Professional of the Year

Kurt Lysne received another big honor this month when he was named a 2018 Young Professional of the Year by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). He is one of five recipients nationwide.

According to ACEC, “The Young Professional of the Year Award strives to promote the accomplishments of young engineers by highlighting their engineering contributions and the resulting impact on society. The campaign is designed to enhance and improve the image of engineering by recognizing young, diverse and talented engineers, thereby portraying engineering as an exciting profession open to everyone.”

Kurt, currently Moore’s Water Resources group leader, adds this honor to his previous awards of Young Professional of the Year by the North Dakota Society of Professional Engineers and a 40 Under 40 by Prairie Business magazine. Kurt is also a graduate of the FMWF Chamber Leadership program.

UPDATE: Kurt was honored at the ACEC national convention in Las Vegas on October 30, 2018. In this photo, he appears with ACEC board chair Manish Kothari and Linda Bauer Darr, president and CEO.
