It has been a busy past few weeks for Frederick Ward Associates’ John V. Mettee, IV and Ted Jasinski, as they have both recently been appointed to serve on various Boards within the community.
John V. Mettee IV, Senior Vice President and Director of Surveying, has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford and Cecil Counties. John has participated in recent fundraising events for the organization such as their annual golf tournament, Kuffed for Kids, and the Kiss a Pig fundraiser, the latter in conjunction with corporate support from FWA. The funds raised from these events help provide a safe and friendly after-school environment for the children of Harford and Cecil Counties.
John’s volunteer and fundraising efforts earlier this year in association with the Maryland Center for the Arts’ (MDFCA) annual Dancing for the Arts Gala garnered the attention of the MDFCA Board and he was asked to join the Board of Directors. John and his wife, Jamila, performed in the gala’s dance competition, which benefited MDCFA’s capital project that is raising funds to build a regional cultural arts center in Harford County.
FWA Vice President and Director of Architecture, Mr. Ted M. Jasinski, has been appointed to the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna. Ted is well-suited for this role, given his experience providing design services to the organization. He looks forward to applying his architectural and industry knowledge to better assist Habitat with future design and construction decisions.
Ted is a current Officer of ABC Baltimore’s Board of Directors, where his role as Secretary assists the organization with their endeavors to establish training programs promoting industry awareness and knowledge, while helping to create apprenticeships through local contractors.
