Celebrating NSPE Professional Engineers Day: Leadership Legacy Continues
Freese and Nichols engineers have been leaders in the profession since even before PE licenses became an industry credential.
Our young engineers continue the Freese and Nichols tradition of taking leadership roles to help emphasize the importance of service to the profession and to our communities. As the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) celebrates its eighth annual Professional Engineers Day today, Aug. 2, we want to recognize our PEs who are guiding state and local chapters and living our Serve Always value.
A historical note: The first professional engineering license was issued to Charles Bellamy in Wyoming on Aug. 8, 1907. Licensed professional engineers pledge to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public, and a PE license continues to signal specialized skills along with high standards for ethics and quality assurance.
