On December 5, 2016, the Connecticut Chapter of the American Institutes of Architects awarded HPA Assistant Director Mary A. Falvey their Public Service Award which recognizes those individuals or groups who enhanced the built environment, educated the public or supported the architectural profession.
The Jury commended Ms. Falvey for the educational component of her contributions and activities and for her service to architects, especially in her capacity as a mentor to young architectural students. She has guided and informed students about the requirements that are at the core of designations within historic districts and helped them to see the importance of careful research in this endeavor. In her role of educating the public about the built environment, she has been a caretaker of the extensive properties under her purview and has shown total dedication to her responsibilities within the community.
