Last week, Stephen Boros, VP of Engineering of Pipeline Plastics, LLC was the proud recipient of the FRANK W. REINHART & HENRY BUTCH KUHLUMANN AWARD. This award was established in 1993 in memory of Frank W. Reinhart and Henry W. (Butch) Kuhlmann who by their leadership, dedication, and contributions exemplify the qualities honored by this award. Frank W. Reinhart, in whose name ASTM has established an award for outstanding contributions in terminology standardization, was the first secretary of Subcommittee D20.17, the predecessor of Committee F17, when it was first established in 1954. Frank Reinhart was also the first secretary of F17 when it spun-off from D20 in 1973.

Criteria of this award include significant contributions in the areas of research, testing, engineering, leading to new and improved testing, product, and application standards; leadership, service, and contributions which have had a broad impact on the quality and standing of plastics piping standardization; as well as marked leadership in technical, administrative, or special activities at the Task Group, Subcommittee, or Committee level.
