Justin Reginato, a professor of construction management at California State University, Sacramento, has been named the 2016 Outstanding Educator by the Associated General Contractors of America’s Education and Research Foundation.
Arlington, Va.-based AGC is a national construction trade organization that represents more than 26,000 companies, including Sacramento region firms that hire CSUS construction management graduates.
AGC’s Outstanding Educator award is a national honor, based on a nominee’s academic contributions, work with students outside the classroom and involvement with colleagues in the industry. Reginato serves as faculty adviser to Sacramento State’s AGC student chapter. He has also helped CSUS construction management students land internships and full-time jobs at AGC companies.
In a letter of congratulations to Reginato, foundation Director Melinda Patrician noted: “The recommendations of your peers at (CSUS) and in the industry, as well as your students, were impressive testimony to the impact your work has had.”
CSUS said the award also includes two $2,500 scholarships for Sacramento State construction management students. Reginato, who has taught construction management at the school since 2009, will be recognized next month at AGC’s annual convention in San Antonio.
