Each year, the George Warren Fuller Awards are presented by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to selected members for their distinguished service to the water supply field in commemoration of the sound engineering skill, the brilliant diplomatic talent and the constructive leadership that characterized the life of George Warren Fuller.
Known as the highest honor given by a section of AWWA, each Fuller awardee gains lifetime respect and recognition from professionals who work in the drinking water field. This includes operators, managers, consultants, regulators, product manufacturers and more. The award bases recipients on an individual’s entire career in the water supply field.
Recently, East Lansing and Meridian Township Water Manager, Clyde Dugan was honored with the George Warren Fuller Award at a recent meeting of the AWWA. In June 2019, Dugan will receive recognition at the AWWA Annual Conference and Exhibition in Denver.
Dugan is being acknowledged for his dedicated and faithful service through his work with the Lansing Board of Water and Light and the East Lansing Meridian Water and Sewer Authority; for ensuring safe and sufficient water supplies to the communities where his efforts have had impact; for the support and leadership he has provided to the AWWA and its members; for his commitment to continual improvement of member value to the Michigan Section; and for his mentoring of those who follow in his footsteps in the water industry.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Clyde for the last three years and am so pleased that he has been recognized with this award. I can’t think of a better person for the Sectionto honor in this way,” said Bonnifer Ballard, Executive Director, MI-AWWA.
