Jim Barnes (Professor, Architecture) has been named one of five Exemplary Mentors in the Nation by ACE National for 2012. This program mentors high school students towards careers in Architecture, Constructure and Engineering (ACE) (http://www.acementor.org/) This award recognizes top mentors who have guided affiliates in their development as well as fostered growth amongst the students and mentors. In February, ACE National accepted one nomination per affiliate and advised that five of the top mentors will be selected as 2012’s Exemplary Mentors.
As recognition for this award, one student from the ACE Mentor Program of Rhode Island will receive a $5,000 college scholarship in Jim’s name. Jim will also be invited to attend the Construction Industry Roundtable’s spring conference in Washington D.C. where he will receive this award.
