Lt. Gov. Richard Ravitch Establishes Engineering Scholarship at CCNY

Honors Former Parsons Brinckerhoff CEO James L. Lammie

The City College of New York (CCNY) today announced that a scholarship in honor of James L. Lammie, former Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Parsons Brinckerhoff Inc. (PB), has been endowed by Richard Ravitch, the Lieutenant Governor of New York.  

Parsons Brinckerhoff is a global planning, engineering and program and construction management organization.  Mr. Ravitch served as a member of PB’s Board of Directors for 15 years before resigning upon being appointed Lieutenant Governor in July.

The James L. Lammie Leadership Scholarship at The City College will be given annually, beginning in 2010, to a civil engineering student in The Grove School of Engineering who exemplifies outstanding scholastic and leadership potential in the field of civil engineering and public infrastructure support.

“Of all the people I’ve known and worked with during a long career in business and government, Jim Lammie stands out as an extraordinary leader,” said Mr. Ravitch. “My hope is that this scholarship will give a City College student the opportunity to emulate Jim’s achievements and integrity.”

Mr. Lammie retired as Chairman of Parsons Brinckerhoff in October, 2009. He was on the Board of Directors for 20 years, serving as Chairman in 2008-2009.  From 1990 to 1996, he was the company’s CEO, and he was President of its largest subsidiary, Parsons Brinckerhoff Quade & Douglas, Inc., from 1982 to 1990.  

He joined PB in 1975 following a 21-year career in the U.S. Army.  He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and holds master’s degrees from The George Washington University and Purdue University.

“I am enormously grateful for the encouragement and support I received in pursuing my own education.  I hope this scholarship gives others the same kind of extraordinary opportunities I’ve had to be of service and make a contribution,” said Mr. Lammie.
