Architecture, planning & design students receive awards at commencement

By Thom Jackson

The College of Architecture, Planning & Design presented two prestigious awards at its 2016 commencement ceremony May 14: the King Medal and the Tau Sigma Delta Medal.

Kim Kneifl, master's degree graduate in landscape architecture, Omaha, Nebraska, received the 2016 King Student Medal for Excellence in Architecture. 

The Architectural Research Centers Consortium King Student Medal for Excellence in Architecture is named in honor of the late Jonathan King, co-founder and first president of the consortium. The award is given to one student per member college. Selection is based on criteria that acknowledge innovation, integrity and scholarship in architectural and/or environmental design research. One student/project was nominated from each of the college disciplines. Nominees included Erin Heiden, master's degree graduate in interior architecture and product design, Lincoln, Nebraska; and Colin Victory, Manhattan, master's degree graduate in regional and community planning.

Everett Haynes, master's degree graduate in regional and community planning, Maize, received the 2016 Tau Sigma Delta Bronze Medal. 

The medal is awarded by individual chapters of Tau Sigma Delta to students who have distinguished themselves in the field of architecture, landscape architecture or the allied arts. The recipient is awarded at a place and time considered appropriate to each chapter.
