“Some of my favorite professors I have had are members of ACI and are involved in at least one Technical Committee of ACI. Through plenty of long talks with them, they made me realize how special this industry really is and how I want to be able to contribute and advance the concrete industry,” shares Michael Morano, University of California – San Diego, 2021 recipient of the Daniel W. Falconer Memorial Fellowship.
