Dick Stehly Award
The Richard Stehly Industry Advancement Award was created to recognize individuals for the advancement of the cast-in-place concrete industry through service or technical expertise. The Minnesota Concrete Council renamed its “Industry Advancement Award” the “Richard Stehly Industry Advancement Award” and awarded it for the first time to Dick Stehly posthumously. Richard D. Stehly, P.E., was one of the founders of American Engineering Testing, Inc. (AET) and American Petrographic Services, Inc. (APS). Some individuals are just meant to leave their mark on an industry, a profession or our society for that matter and Dick did just that.

2012 Stehly Award Recipient
Jack Gibbons’ job has been to meet with owners, engineering and architectural firms, contractor groups, and community groups to educate them on the benefits of using reinforced concrete. His responsibility has been to deliver the value and benefits message of reinforced concrete. He is always on the go presenting to groups within his Midwest Region as well as all across the country. His specific focus is structural concrete; if they can sell the values and benefits of concrete construction, reinforcing steel comes along as part of the package.

RICHARD D. STEHLY, PE
Richard D. Stehly, PE, one of the founders of American Engineering Testing, Inc. (AET) and American Petrographic Services, Inc. (APS), passed away suddenly on Saturday evening September 18, 2010. Some individuals are just meant to leave their mark on an industry, a profession or our society, for that matter and Dick did just that. The reaction to Dick’s unexpected passing has gone beyond local attention, garnering both national and international responses. Why such attention to a concrete, materials and forensic engineer from Minnesota?
