Patrick Panetta, AIA

Congratulations to the AIA WMR's Past Regional Director's, Tania Salgado, FAIA and Patrick Panetta, AIA on their recognition as a recipient of the Louise Blanchard Bethune Fellowship Medal.

Reserved for retiring members of the Strategic Council, the Louise Blanchard Bethune Fellows serves to recognize their service and signify their continued commitment to the mission of the AIA and Strategic Council. This honor, similar in spirit and significance to the Richard Upjohn Fellowship, symbolizes a high level of dedication to the advancement of the profession of architecture and celebrates the distinctive role of Strategic Council leadership in the profession. Louise Blanchard Bethune Fellows act as advisors and ambassadors to the AIA beyond their term of service on the Strategic Council.

The Louise Blanchard Bethune Fellowship is named for the first American woman recognized as a professional architect and the first female to be elevated to Fellowship in the AIA. An architectural vanguard, Bethune ushered in a new future for the profession and society. She challenged the status quo of the profession and set new standards for architectural practice.

Congratulations!
