Scott Simons was elevated to the prestigious College of Fellows.

Scott Simons was among the 149 AIA members elevated to AIA's prestigious College of Fellows by the 2016 Jury of Fellows.  Elevation to the College of Fellows is an honor awarded to members who have made significant contributions to the profession. The 2016 Fellows will be honored at an investiture ceremony at the AIA Convention in Philadelphia in May.

"AIA Maine is thrilled that Scott Simons was elevated to the College of Fellows. Scott has been a strong voice and advocate for architecture in the State of Maine. His library work exemplifies the remarkable power of good design to build stronger communities in our state and it is exciting to see his contributions recognized on a national level," said Rob Tillotson, president of AIA Maine.

The Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession.  Election to fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of architects as individuals, but also their significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.
