SAME Academy of Fellows InductionCongratulations to our own Mike E. Mason on his induction into the SAME Academy of Fellows Class of 2018 on March 7, 2018 at a ceremony held in Bethesda, MD. He was one of 25 new members inducted this year from across the country.

Established in 1995, the SAME Academy of Fellows recognizes those members who have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to the Society, to military engineering, and to the A/E/C profession.

Mike began his career at CATLIN in August 1987, first as a Project Manager and since 2001 as Vice-President, where he excels in leading contamination remediation on US Navy and Marine Corps sites.

Mike has been an active member of SAME since 2002, serving as Post President two different terms, as well as Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary for the Cape Fear Post and Secretary of the Coastal Carolina Post. Significant highlights under his leadership include the Cape Fear Post earning the Top Small Post award in 2015. Mike is the driver behind the Post’s hosting of Reaction Course Day for the Marine Corps Engineering and Construction Camp at Camp Lejeune, recruiting and sponsoring students, mentors, and volunteers. His outstanding mentorship is directly attributable to over a dozen Young Members joining the society, and participating in numerous Post activities.
