Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) named Theresa Lehman of Miron Construction Co., Inc. to the 2012 class of LEED Fellows. The LEED Fellow Program is the green building industry’s most prestigious professional designation. The LEED Fellow designation recognizes exceptional contributions to green building and significant professional achievement within the rapidly growing community of LEED professionals.
Lehman was among 43 of the world’s most distinguished green building professionals to be selected as LEED Fellows through a peer nomination and portfolio review process. Lehman’s LEED AP-BD+C and ID+C credentials, 12 years of green building experience and extensive portfolio, including such exemplary projects as the nation’s first Platinum LEED certified public school, the Lake Mills Middle School renovation and expansion project, comprise a few of her outstanding qualifications.
“We are thrilled to present these highly accomplished individuals with the LEED Fellow designation,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, USGBC. “The Fellows are some of the leading innovators and vanguards of the green building movement, and their bodies of work strongly underscore their commitment to LEED and a sustainable built environment.”
Lehman will be recognized with the rest of the 2012 LEED Fellow class at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in San Francisco next month. For more information on the LEED Fellow program, please visit new.usgbc.org/leed/credentials/leed-fellow/.
