The Board of Directors of the Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana, Inc. (APAI) has announced that Gary Greene, Ph.D., associate professor of civil engineering at Trine University, is the recipient of the association's inaugural "Outstanding Asphalt Industry Educator Award."

Greene will be presented with this recognition at the organization's annual meeting in Indianapolis on Dec. 20 at the Indianapolis Marriot East Conference Center.

This award is not meant to be presented annually, but is reserved and meant to be presented in special cases where a university educator goes the extra mile in exposing his or her students to the outstanding career opportunities available to them within the Indiana asphalt industry.

The organization said Greene has demonstrated extra effort through guest classroom asphalt materials lectures by APAI member firm volunteers, class tours of an asphalt plant in Angola operated by an APAI member firm, continuous promotion of the expanding APAI civil engineering scholarship program at Trine, and accompanying students who receive APAI scholarships to the association's state convention and trade show in Indianapolis. The convention and trade show includes the organization's Scholarship Banquet, professional educational sessions offered throughout the day, and networking opportunities with more than 600 members, INDOT staff and local public agency personnel in attendance.

"APAI's Board of Directors, along with our Scholarship Committee and Workforce Development Committee, all salute the entire Trine civil engineering faculty, administration and executive leadership for an outstanding partnership dating back to 2012," said William Knopf, executive director of APAI. "Dr. Greene's efforts on behalf of his students deserve to be recognized."

The Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana, Inc. was formed in 1959 and is comprised today of more than 100 member firms, including 20 major asphalt producers based in Indiana. Cumulatively, association members produced 11.5 million tons of asphalt in 2018, serving the Indiana Department of Transportation, along with the state's counties, cities, commercial and aviation markets.
