Albuquerque, N.M.— Jaime Moya, a senior manager for ES&H Planning & Assurance at Sandia National Laboratories, is the winner of a 2005 Award for Professional Achievement from the Hispanic Engineer National Achievement Awards Corporation. The award will be presented at the 2005 HENAAC Conference in October in Anaheim, Calif.
Moya's road to achievement began in kindergarten when he spoke only Spanish. "It taught me that you can quickly figure things out if you set your mind to it and not be afraid of uncomfortable situations," says Moya.
Before he became a group manager in ES&H, Moya was manager for the Test Capabilities Revitalization (TCR) program at Sandia. The program's goal is to vitalize the National Nuclear Security Administration's test capabilities.
Moya personally recruits and encourages Sandia staff to participate in community projects such as the Wise Men & Women mentorship program, local and state science fairs, and the MANOS program, a Sandia/Albuquerque Public Schools program that seeks to introduce science and engineering concepts to middle school students.
