ASLA Announces 2016 Class of Fellows
Investiture of the 28 Fellows Is Set for Oct. 23 in New Orleans


Elizabeth Sargent, of Liz Sargent HLA, and the ASLA Virginia Chapter, was nominated in the "Works" category. Her project work includes planning and design studies for such nationally significant historic properties as Mount Vernon, the Washington Monument, Yellowstone National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Yorktown Battlefield.

The American Society of Landscape Architects has released the identity of its 2016 Class of Fellows. This year's class is 28 in number; 6 women and 22 men.

ASLA Fellowship is of course among the association's highest honors, recognizing the career contributions of its members under the categories of works, leadership and management, and knowledge and service. The Fellow designation is conferred in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained time. This distinction requires at least 10 years of membership in ASLA and nomination by a state ASLA chapter, or by the executive committees of ASLA or the Council of Fellows.

From a purely geographic perspective, California had the most representation, with 5 Fellows; Texas, Louisiana, South Carolina, Indiana and Massachusetts followed with 2 each. The states with one Fellow in the 2016 class are Colorado; Connecticut; Florida; Georgia; Maine; Maryland; New Jersey; New Mexico; New York; Ohio; Pennsylvania; Utah and Virginia.

Congratulations to the 2016 ASLA Class of Fellows.
