Asphalt Institute Award Winners

Roll of Honor

Established 1965

Roll of HonorThe Roll of Honor is the highest level of recognition conferred by the Asphalt Institute. Individuals selected for award to the Institute’s Roll of Honor have contributed tremendously to the asphalt industry through either sustained technical achievement or through the substantial contribution of leadership. Roll of Honor status is typically granted as a career capstone event for the recipient.

The inauguration of the Asphalt Institute’s Roll of Honor in 1965 marked the first step in fulfillment of a long-felt need to record, in continuing approbation, the names of those whose contributions to the asphalt industry have been outstanding and proven by time.

Since then and in each succeeding year, the names of persons to be honored by election to the Roll of Honor are selected on a merit basis encompassing the careers of both living and deceased nominees. The Institute’s Personnel Advisory Committee is responsible for oversight of this program to honor individuals annually.

The announcement of the names of those selected is made at Asphalt Institute annual meetings. Each honored recipient receives a framed scroll in recognition of the award. As of 2004, the Institute also awards each Roll of Honor recipient the Asphalt Institute award medallion – a polished brass medallion with engraved AI logo and images of the liquid asphalt supply industry. The Roll of Honor engraved medallion hangs from a gold ribbon.

Emeritus Recognition

Emeritus RecognitionThe emeritus title originates from the Latin emereri (meaning: earn one’s discharge by service) and is often used in distinguished academic fields. In bestowing this title, we acknowledge and respect the two parts of the concept:

  1. honor for service
  2. continuation of belonging

The inspiration for this status is reflected in the inaugural class – each member has been both visionary in his leadership and dedicated in his service. In granting this new status, we confirm that, although they may not be with us on a regular basis, their exemplary service merits their always being an esteemed part of our organization.
