The American Society of Landscape Architecture’s annual award honors member volunteers who are making notable contributions to or on behalf of the Society at the national level.
RDG Planning & Design is proud to announce that Kene Okigbo, ASLA has been recognized by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) with the 2020 Outstanding Service Award. ASLA’s annual award honors member volunteers who are making notable contributions to or on behalf of the Society at the national level. Recipients are nominated by members of the Executive Committee, committee chairs, PPN chairs and ASLA national staff.
“Kene is a well-respected individual at RDG and within ASLA and the many other community organizations in which he’s involved. This recognition is a public proclamation of something everyone who works with Kene already knows: his volunteerism is substantial and extremely generous,” said RDG Partner Cary Thomsen, PLA ASLA.
Since joining RDG in 2018, Okigbo has been involved with projects in a variety of markets, including College & University, Parks & Recreation, Sports and Urban Design. As a member of the firm’s Landscape Architecture Studio, he’s shown his passion for creating environments that positively impact the people and communities they serve and is a strong advocate for just and equitable design. Okigbo serves on numerous industry panels, including ASLA’s Government Affairs and Climate Action Committees and Landscape Architecture Magazine’s Editorial Advisory Committee.
“I’m really grateful for the support I have from RDG. I am one of many who give their time to ideals larger than the individual and it’s easier to do so knowing you’re not doing it alone,” said Okigbo. “It’s truly an honor, not only to receive this award but to work with passionate and selfless people at both ASLA and RDG.”
