The Preservation Alumni Leadership Award is presented annually to an outstanding graduate of Columbia University’s Historic Preservation Program who has contributed significantly to the preservation field, while devoting his or her time and talents to support the mission of Preservation Alumni. This award recognizes our community’s leaders who are an essential part of keeping preservation relevant and innovative, as well as ensuring that the alumni network remains strong and accessible to current students. The award is presented at PA’s annual spring party.
Since the inaugural Preservation Alumni Leadership Award in 2015, PA has presented the award to Frank Emile Sanchis III, Director of U.S. Programs at World Monuments Fund and PA’s founding president; Andrew Dolkart, the former director of Columbia’s Historic Preservation Program; Chicago-based architect Gunny Harboe; and Kevin Lee Sarring, architect for the U.S. State Department, Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations.
