E Fly_MEDAL CARD 2_blogI am absolutely humbled to be one of the ten recipients of the 2014 National Humanities Medal from President Barack Obama and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Architecture and landscape architecture are not generally considered as traditional humanities disciplines. Over the years I have learned that the ways that people live and organize their society are deeply embedded in the architecture and landscapes they create, whether classical or vernacular. The humanities provide essential content for sustainable and relevant design theory. I look forward to continuing to integrate humanities disciplines into landscape architecture and architecture in as many creative ways as possible.

So many people and communities have been supported because of your vision, heart, talent, and action. Knowing you from high school, I am not surprised about your accomplishments, just humbled by your daily walk as a servant-leader and for answering your calling. Continued success, Cheese Goddess 🙂
