We are thrilled to announce that Donna W. Dunay, FAIA, ACSADP, G. Truman Ward Professor of Architecture, has been awarded the Louise Blanchard Bethune Fellowship from the American Institute of Architects. This prestigious award is reserved for retiring members of the AIA Strategic Council who continue to serve as advisors and ambassadors to the organization.

Donna was honored with this top recognition in tribute to her three-year term on the council. She joined with others to forecast trends and strategies to ensure the profession looks to the present and future with relevant and vital concerns to suggest frames for action.

Expressing her gratitude, Donna says, "It is a tremendous honor to be a recipient of the Louise Blanchard Bethune Fellowship, and to be recognized by the AIA Board of Directors, my peers, and colleagues in the AIA. It is so important that our profession listens broadly while looking deeply into the future for the benefit of communities and the environment."

We are proud to have such an accomplished, visionary leader in our architecture community. Congratulations, Donna, on this well-deserved recognition!
