NAVFAC Engineer Receives State of Hawaii Recognition

PEARL HARBOR (KHNL) -- A civil/structural engineer at Naval Facilities Engineering Command was named 2008 Young Engineer of the Year by the Hawaii Council of Engineering Societies.

Paulette Ujimori was selected after an evaluation of her accomplishments and contributions to the engineering profession and through three letters of recommendation from individuals who knew her abilities first hand.

"This award is a reflection of all the hard work of the great people that I have had the privilege of teaming with on projects both for the Navy/Marine Corps and within the engineering community," said Ujimori.

The Hawaii Council of Engineering Societies honors three individuals annually as its Engineer of the Year, Young Engineer of the Year and Student Engineer of the Year.
