Arsen Voskerchyan Recieves 2018 Rory M. Shaw Outstanding Employee Award

The City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering (Engineering) has announced that Senior Civil Engineer, Arsen Voskerchyan, is the 2018 recipient of Engineering’s Rory M. Shaw Outstanding Employee Award. Each year, Engineering gives out the award to honor Shaw, who died on duty in 2005, and to recognize the dedication and excellence in leadership exemplified by Shaw during his nine years with Engineering.

Voskerchyan began working with Engineering in 2007. He received his bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from University of California at Irvine, with a specialization in Structures. He currently oversees daily operations of the Safe Sidewalks LA program, the City’s new, 30-year, $1.4 billion sidewalk repair program. The program was publicly launched at the end of 2016 with a mission to make sidewalks accessible to everyone in the city.
