ASID Names National Honors Recipients

Aug. 4, 2015

People and chapters were recognized

The National Honors awards recognize outstanding service to the society, its chapters, and the community. This year, one chapter and six people have received recognition from the society. “The winners are passionate leaders in our profession and make a meaningful impact on the work we do,” said Randy Fiser, CEO of ASID.

For the last three years, the New York Metro Chapter has coordinated a pro bono design project to renovate Su Casa Residence, a facility that provides long-term treatment for those recovering from addiction. Volunteers donated over $450,000 worth of design services and labor while collecting more than $160,000 in cash donations. The project utilized evidence-based design practices and sustainable materials.

The ASID Medalist Award went to the Los Angeles chapter’s president Sybil Jane Barrido and Alaska chapter’s president Mary G. Knopf. Barrido’s firm SJVD Design specializes in urban reuse and hospitality, and she’s also an adjunct faculty member at Woodbury University; Knopf has served on nominating, strategic planning, and fundraising committees, while working as principal at ECI/Hyer.

The Educator Medalist winner was Lisa M. Tucker of the Virginia chapter. A former president, she is active as the student kick-off coordinator and student task force chair, and also serves as the ASID faculty liaison at Virginia Tech. Industry Partner Merit Award winners include Doug Hartsell of the Washington Metro chapter and Patty Dominguez of the California Central/Nevada chapter. Both have made notable contributions in their communities through event and conference planning.

Linda Singer Heinz was honored with the Lifetime Award. She has served on the ASID National Board and held every officer positon on the Arizona North Chapter Board. Her perseverance, mentoring, and encouragement continue to this day.
