Malcomb and William Ware by awarding them with the Alumni of the Year Award,” said Janice Cervelli, Dean of the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. “It is the College’s greatest honor given only once in the past to Jane Weinzapfel of Boston, MA, in 2006. Bill and Bill’s values have been the foundation of their success. Their lifetime achievements in business, in architectural design, and in public service more than demonstrate the excellence of their education and dedication to the design profession.”
