Engineers win awards for something greater than their professional skills…their service to others

Two of the highest honors presented by SCJ Alliance are the annual SCJ Cares Award and Entrepreneurial Award.

Between the two awards, 15 SCJ team members were nominated this year by their peers for commitment to our core values, including compassion, stewardship, trust, and integrity.

Senior Project Manager Bob Tauscher was presented the SCJ Cares Award. An engineer in our Centralia office, Bob is known for being big-hearted both at work and in the community, where you’ll find him coaching Special Olympics teams, preparing for mission trips with his church, and swinging a hammer for Rebuilding Together Thurston County.

“I feel like Bob really embraces our culture of caring both inside and outside of the firm. He always has a smile on his face and always says yes,” one nominator said. Another colleague shared, “I will always remember him as one of the first people who made me feel welcome at SCJ. Despite the fact that he’s often in the field away from SCJ folks, he still seems to be the embodiment of the SCJ culture. He participates in so many of the SCJ activities including those where we are serving others.”

Tyrell Bradley, a project manager in SCJ’s Lacey office, earned the coveted Entrepreneurial Award. Tyrell, who is a leader in our civil group, was praised for creating and maintaining extraordinary client relationships, and his patience and collaboration with colleagues. One nominator wrote, “Whether he’s working with a client or talking to stakeholders, he’s cool and confident under pressure.”

Another nominator called out Tyrell’s wonderful disposition and can-do attitude. “He is an excellent mentor, working with staff to advance their skill and confidence, participating in firm-wide activities, and representing SCJ at community events,” they shared.

SCJ President and CEO Jean Carr echoes the thoughts of others, saying, “Both Bob and Tyrell live our core values and model them for others, whether they’re working with clients or colleagues. We are grateful for their service and their overall genuine and caring spirits.”
