Michelle Rambo-Roddenberry received the Distinguished Service Award at the NCEES Joint Northeast/Southern Zone meeting held April 27-29, 2017. She is an associate professor in civil engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and has been involved with the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) since 2011 and with the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE), an NCEES member board, since 2012.

"It was a complete surprise and very humbling. NCEES and FBPE are phenomenal organizations that I'm fortunate to be part of," remarked Rambo-Roddenberry.

The award recognized Rambo-Roddenberry for her service to NCEES and, in parallel, to FBPE. She has served four years on the NCEES Committee on Education (two years as chair) and four years on the NCEES Engineering Education Award jury (three years as chair). She represents NCEES as a delegate on ABET's Applied and Natural Science Area Delegation and Engineering Technology Area Delegation, as well as the alternate delegate on ABET's Board of Delegates and Engineering Area Delegation. She is also chair of FBPE's Education Committee, which is responsible for recently rewriting rules in the Florida Administrative Code on educational requirements for licensure.

"Congratulations to Dr. Rambo-Roddenberry on this prestigious award. Her dedicated service warrants this award and much more," responded Kamal Tawfiq, Chair and Professor, FAMU-FSU Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Comprising 70 member boards, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying is the nonprofit organization that develops, administers, and scores the Fundamentals of Engineering (F.E.) and Principles and Practice of Engineering (P.E.) examinations. At NCEES meetings and through committees, the boards work together to establish national Model Laws, Model Rules, and licensing standards that boards can strive for or adopt in their own states.
