Last night at the association’s annual award banquet, the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) New Jersey named Megan Young, PE, H&H Associate, 2022 Young Professional of the Year. The award is given each year to a young professional who has shown exemplary work ethic and technical knowledge, involvement in the engineering community, and a willingness to assist in the development of entry-level staff.
Since joining H&H in 2013 as a graduate from Lafayette College with a degree in Civil Engineering, Megan has worked as a Structural Engineer, Project Engineer, and Deputy Project Manager on transportation infrastructure projects. Recent projects include the $250M Unionport Bridge, Bronx, NY, and the $640M Kew Gardens Interchange, Queens, NY. “Megan is a natural leader, inspiring and motivating those that work with her,” said H&H Principal Glen Schetelich (pictured with Megan). “She takes great pride in her work, and her passion is contagious.”
Megan participates in several professional societies, including the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) in New Jersey and New York and ACEC NJ. She is also an advocate for women in engineering and is on ACEC NJ’s 2021-2023 Women Executives in Engineering committee. Within H&H, Megan leads the firm’s college recruitment program, assisting her peers with navigating and preparing for college recruitment programs. For the last five years, she has also led H&H’s Internship Program and has grown the program to include all of H&H’s offices throughout the United States.
