World renowned for his work on the Texas Transportation Institute’s (TTI’s) Urban Mobility Report, Research Engineer Tim Lomax has been awarded the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents’ highest honor. Lomax was presented with the Regents Fellow Service Award during ceremonies held Dec. 4.
The Regents Fellow Service Award is selected for those A&M System employees “who have provided exemplary professional service to society that has created large and lasting benefits to Texas and beyond.”
“I am extremely honored to receive this award,” Lomax said. “I’m not usually speechless, but how does one person accept an award that is a reflection of a team effort? My wife and son, the folks in the Mobility Analysis Program and many other colleagues at TTI have created an incredible environment. It’s easy to provide ‘exemplary service’ when you collaborate with creative, hard-working people on interesting projects for sponsors who appreciate our ideas—I am only a small part of that process.”
The Regents Service Award was established in 1998. So far, 66 agency professionals have been named Regent Fellows including four others from TTI: Hayes Ross, Gene Buth, Dock Burke and Dennis Christiansen.
“I am in great company,” Lomax observed.
At a dinner in their honor, Regents Fellows received a $9,000 stipend, a commemorative medallion and a certificate.
