Centralia engineer Bob Tauscher was recently awarded the SCJ Cares Award for his commitment to serving his colleagues and the community. Bob, who was nominated by his peers, was honored for exemplifying SCJ’s core values, including compassion, stewardship, trust and integrity.
A Senior Project Manager in SCJ’s Centralia office, Bob is known for being big-hearted both at work and in the community. You can find him coaching Special Olympics teams, preparing for mission trips with his church and swinging a hammer for Rebuilding Together, among other things. “I feel like Bob really embraces our culture of caring both inside and outside of the firm. He’s always pleasant and eager to help,” shared Centralia Office Principal Brandon Johnson.
Another colleague shared, “I’ll always remember Bob as one of the first people who made me feel welcome at SCJ. Bob seems to be the embodiment of the SCJ culture. He participates in so many SCJ activities, including those where we are serving others.”
The SCJ Cares Award is one of two annual awards presented by SCJ Alliance. The other, the Entrepreneurial Award, was received this year by Tyrell Bradley. Tyrell, who is a leader in SCJ’s civil engineering group, is a project manager in SCJ’s Lacey office and has worked on many Centralia College projects. He was praised for creating and maintaining extraordinary client relationships and his patience and collaboration with colleagues. One nominator wrote, “Whether he’s working with a client or talking to stakeholders, he’s cool and confident under pressure.”
SCJ President and CEO Jean Carr echo the thoughts of others 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.”
