Two of the highest honors presented by SCJ Alliance are the annual SCJ Cares Award and Entrepreneurial Award. They are peer-nominated awards, honoring commitment to SCJ’s core values, including compassion, stewardship, trust, and integrity.
This year Senior Project Manager Bob Tauscher was presented with the SCJ Cares Award and Tyrell Bradley, a project manager in SCJ’s Lacey office, earned the coveted Entrepreneurial Award. SCJ President and CEO Jean Carr shared the thoughts of many, saying, “Both Bob and Tyrell live our core values and model them for others, whether they’re working with clients or colleagues. We are grateful for their service and their overall genuine and caring spirits.”
Bob is an engineer who works fluidly from many SCJ offices. He is known for being big-hearted both at work and in the community. You can find Bob coaching Special Olympics teams, preparing for mission trips with his church, and swinging a hammer for Rebuilding Together Thurston County, among other things. “I feel like Bob really embraces our culture of caring both inside and outside of the firm. He always has a smile on his face and always says yes,” one nominator said.
Tyrell, who is a leader in the civil engineering group, was praised for creating and maintaining extraordinary client relationships, as well as his patience and collaboration with colleagues. One nominator wrote, “Tyrell is an excellent mentor, working with staff to advance their skill and confidence, participating in firm-wide activities, and representing SCJ at community events.”
