The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Los Angeles Branch recognized two UCLA alumni during their annual awards night on July 28.

Paul Lee, BS ’15 was awarded the Outstanding Civil Engineer in Legislative Activities award. Lee is an Energy Policy Analyst at the LA Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, where his focus is on renewable energy, greenhouse gas monitoring, and air quality. Lee also serves on the UCLA CEE Alumni Advisory Board.

Gary Lee Moore, BS ’85, the second longest serving Los Angeles city engineer, received the Lifetime Achievement award. Moore has served the city for 37 years, with the last 19 years leading as the City Engineer. According to the LA Mayor’s Office, during Moore’s leadership, “the Bureau of Engineering made significant advances in technology, sustainability, gender equity, as well as transparency and accountability through data.” 

Another UCLA alumnus, Ted Allen, BS ’92 has been appointed as LA City Engineer in light of Moore’s recent retirement.
