ARCHITECTURE

Out of more than 3,180 submissions from 46 countries, Dyson Janzen Architects in Fresno has won a Gold Award in the 2019 Muse Design Awards competition. 

The winning work was created by Arthur Dyson for the Educational Employees Credit Union in Sanger. 

The Muse Design Awards are international competitions for creative and design professionals from all disciplines who help push the evolution of their industry in a positive direction. 

This year’s Jury Panel included 42 renowned, experienced, and brand-new Judges from 22 countries worldwide. 

HEALTH CARE

The American Heart Association (AHA), the world’s leading voluntary health organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular disease and stroke, held its 2019 Central Valley Heart and Stroke Ball June 8 at The Banker’s Ballroom in Downtown Fresno. The event raised vital funds to go toward education and research in the fight against heart disease and stroke — the No.1 and No.5 leading killers in the United States. 

More than 350 attendees enjoyed drinks, a gourmet dinner, dancing and silent and live auctions at the black-tie affair. 

Attendees also heard from Rachael Goldring-Bell, a congenital heart disease survivor, who shared her personal story and ongoing fight for her life. 

The Central Valley Heart and Stroke Ball was co-chaired Dr. Shams and Mrs. Tricia Khwaja of Central California Heart & Lung Surgery. The event is locally sponsored by Community Medical Centers. 

ENGINEERING

Tyler Wilfong, an employee for Cornerstone Structural Engineering Group, was recently selected to receive a $2,500 scholarship from the Council of American Structural Engineers (CASE) through the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). 

Scholarship winners will be honored at the annual Awards Luncheon at the ACEC Fall Conference in Chicago in October. 

Wilfong is working towards a Master’s Degree at California State University, Fresno. He originally pursued structural engineering because of his love of architecture and math at a young age. 

He hopes to use his structural engineering knowledge to help people in the future. 

In addition to this national scholarship, Wilfong also received a scholarship from ACEC California, San Joaquin Valley Chapter as well as a scholarship from American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
