HOK’s Charles Smith Receives Octavius Morgan Distinguished Service Award

square_300dpi_CharlesSmithSenior Project Manager Charles Ray Smith, Jr., was recognized by the California Architects Board for his volunteerism within the profession.

“In 1982, Smith earned his Master of Architecture degree from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. While at Cal Poly, he became a graduate teaching assistant. … He has since lectured on sustainability at the University of Southern California.

“His interest in teaching, Smith said, led him to the California Architects Board and his work with the California Supplemental Examination (CSE). Since 2003, Smith has served on several committees as well as volunteered his time as a commissioner, master commissioner and subject matter expert. Smith has dedicated more than 650 hours for CSE-related activities.”

At HOK, Smith has worked with the firm’s Aviation + Transportation, Justice and Healthcare practices, including projects such as the Santa Clarita Transit Maintenance Facility and the Scripps Prebys Cardiovascular Institute.
