David Cook, AIA, was awarded the AIA Ohio Public Service Award last Thursday, September 28, during the AIA Ohio Valley Region Honoring Excellence Awards program at the Indianapolis Artsgarden.

A long-time member of AIA Dayton, David has been the very definition of a “citizen architect” participating in improving the quality of life for all the citizens of Tipp City and the surrounding township well before the term “citizen architect” was coined.

David has served his community in many ways, but perhaps his most important contributions have come through his work in local government, where he was able to apply the critical thinking of an architect to the challenges facing a community.


The Student Design Competition is a hypothetical architecture prompt offered to high school students. It begins each year in mid-January and goes through March. Meetings for the competition mimic college studio classes and are held at design oriented or architecturally significant local venues. Designs are judged by local design professionals and several scholarships are available to winners.

Teachers, parents and students interested in hearing more details of what is involved and that (hopefully!) will consider participating or sharing the program's details with others.

October 11, 2017 at 4 p.m. Sinclair Community College, building 11, room 11-423.

Jenna Demeter of Springfield was awarded a $2,000 scholarship by the Dayton Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Each year, AIA Dayton awards scholarships to outstanding students from the Dayton/Miami Valley Region. 

Jenna Demeter is a 2017 graduate of Springfield High School. Jenna will begin her architecture studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville this fall.  

While attending Springfield High School, Jenna served as the National Honor Society President, captained the varsity tennis squad and held the position of chairperson for the Springfield High School Blood Drive for two years. These are just a few of the accomplishments Jenna completed while carrying a 4.62 Weighted Grade Point Average.  

Monday, July 31, AIA Dayton held the annual golf outing at the Troy Country Club in Troy, OH. The day could not have been any more beautiful and the club was a perfect place to take advantage of this weather and hit the links! The outing was held to raise funds for the AIA Dayton Scholarship Fund, and the winner of this year's award, Jenna Demeter, was given her prize at the banquet after the day had winded down. Everyone had a great day, and some participants' days were made even better when they were given the prizes for their golfing skills.

On April 27 a group of 70 AIA, CSI, AGC and IFMA members took a hardhat tour of the downtown Dayton Metro Library.  The library is scheduled to open in June.  Before the actual tour began, representatives from the Library, Heapy Engineering, and LWC – including John Fabelo, AIA, and Will Kaly, AIA, briefed the group on some of the significant features and challenges of retrofitting and adding on to the existing structure.  For a full photo album, see the AIA Dayton Facebook page.
