Bill Lapsley

William G. "Bill" Lapsley, who in a decades-long career had a hand in dozens of major construction projects and subdivisions while spearheading Henderson County's economic development efforts, is being recognized by his alma mater as the Distinguished Engineer for 2024.

Cameron H. G. Wright, Carrell Family Dean at the University of Wyoming, notified Lapsley on Feb. 1 that the Committee for Awards and Recognition had selected him for the honor.

"Selection as Distinguished Engineer is reserved for those alumni of the College who have at least ten years of professional experience in engineering since graduation and have distinguished themselves based upon their achievements and contributions in engineering practice and leadership at the regional or national level," Wright said. "Awardees are recognized as leaders in their respective fields and for their accomplishments and contributions to their profession and to society. Your accomplishments reflect great honor upon yourself and the College."
Lapsley will be recognized at the annual awards banquet of the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences on Saturday, April 27, in Laramie.
