Reston, Va. – The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has announced its 2012 New Faces of Civil Engineering. Each year, as an integral part of the society’s National Engineers Week initiatives, a diverse group of young engineers, age 30 and under, are selected as the New Faces of Civil Engineering. The group represents not only those who have made an impact in their fields, but also in their own communities and in communities around the world through their volunteerism and community service.
Congratulations to ASCE’s 2012 New Faces of Civil Engineering:
• Clinton Camp, P.E., M.ASCE, 30, director of facilities and county engineer for Montgomery County, TN
• Ross Gordon, P.E., M.ASCE, 27, a project engineer for AECOM in Philadelphia

Each year, ASCE names 10 New Faces of Civil Engineering, some of whom are also submitted to the New Faces of Engineering program run by the Engineers Week Foundation. This inclusive national program includes representatives from the civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, industrial and manufacturing engineering professions. Selected New Faces profiles are featured in a USA Today ad during Engineers Week and are profiled on the National Engineers Week website at www.eweek.org, as well as at www.discoverengineering.org.
Profiles of all of the New Faces can be read in this month's issue of ASCE News at asce-news.asce.org. You can also see videos of some of the New Faces on ASCE's YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/AmerSocCivilEng!
As an addition this year, ASCE recognized the tremendous strides that civil engineering students are making to improve the quality of life for all with its first annual New Faces of Civil Engineering - College Edition.
