NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers recently awarded Thomas J. Davis, vice president of S&ME, as the outstanding professional engineer of the year award for Tennessee.
The honor was presented during the Tennessee Engineers’ Conference on Sept. 17. It is the highest award offered by the organization.
Davis expressed his thanks and challenged the young engineers in the audience to “get involved, be engaged, work hard, do what you say you are going to do and treat people right.”
The society recognized Davis for his professional level of integrity and outstanding character. He was also selected due to his contributions to the engineering profession and the community. Earlier this year, the Nashville chapter of TSPE honored Davis, which qualified him for the award.

Examples of his work include privatization projects on dozens of military installations, educational and campus projects, health care facilities and mixed-use developments. He graduated from the University of Kentucky, and currently manages engineering staff from Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia.
