LSW Architects recently welcomed Melissa Galen to the firm. Galen joins the team as a senior architect, bringing more than a decade of experience primarily focused in the housing sector with a specialty in mass timber design. A graduate of Woodbury University, Galen has built a robust portfolio of projects, from multifamily and senior living to mixed-use and modular housing, with her recent work on PathHouse gaining national attention for its innovative approach to addressing the current climate and housing crises.

The National Utility Contractors Association selected Clark County native Renee Nutter as the recipient of the 2024 “We Dig America” Award. Nutter pioneered Dozer Day, which gives children and students hands-on exposure to construction careers. In 2008, The Nutter Family Foundation acquired the rights to the Dozer Day brand and has since added seven events in areas such as Kansas City, Mo., and Hendersonville, Tenn. As of 2024, the foundation has reinvested $2.2 million into the communities with a Dozer Day presence.

In February, Gov. Jay Inslee appointed multiple Clark County residents to boards and commissions. Appointments include: Libby Mongue-Wymore of Vancouver to the Andy Hill Cancer Research Endowment, Carolyn Sowdon of Vancouver to the Governor’s Committee on Disability Issues and Employment, and Tracy Stanley of La Center to the State Investment Board.
