JAMA is thrilled to share the news about Kent Kaewwaen, P.E., S.E.‘s honor as a 2019 ACE National Mentor of the Year! Well done, and well deserved!
JAMA’s Kent Kaewwaen has been selected as an ACE National Mentor of the year! This significant honor was given to only five mentors across the country, and includes recognition in an upcoming issue of Engineering News-Record, as well as participation in the National ACE Design and Construction Competition this May in Washington, DC. A scholarship, awarded to a Los Angeles-area student who participates in the ACE program, will also be named in his honor.
Kent’s involvement with the ACE Mentor program started when he was a mentee at John Marshall High School back in 2004. He received an ACE scholarship in 2005, and volunteered with the organization through college. After graduating with his Masters, he returned as a mentor, rebuilding and then leading ACE LA’s Pasadena team. In 2015 he was recognized with the ACE LA/OC Engineering Mentor of the Year award. He currently leads two ACE teams and is a regular speaker and volunteer at various ACE-related events. He also has been nominated and approved as a member of the Los Angeles ACE Board of Directors for a three-year term.
