Rick Wolf, second from left, is Lyle’s son; he started his engineering career at GRW alongside many of those shown above. 

Midway University's sixth annual Spotlight Awards ceremony included a special member of the GRW team, the firm's second president Lyle Wolf; he served as GRW’s president from 1967 to 1991. GRW joined the university in honoring Lyle with the Midway University Legacy Award for his 35 years of service to the Midway as a trustee. He's one of the longest serving trustees, having worked with six Midway presidents.

Among his accomplishments and contributions to Midway is the role he played as vice chair of "The Bridge to a Brighter Future" campaign, which helped raise funds for the construction of the Anne Hart Raymond Mathematics and Science Building, which opened in 2003. He also served on Midway's Executive, Finance, Building and Grounds, and Development committees. Most recently he was a part of the Presidential Search Committee when Dr. John Marsden joined the university in 2013. 

As GRW's second president, he also played a key role in the firm's beginnings; during his tenure it grew from six employees to 185. GRW also began to be noticed nationally during those years; the firm has been named to Engineering News Record's Top 500 Design Firms in the United States each year since 1972.

The GRW team is proud to offer our congratulations to Lyle and his family, as well as our appreciation to Midway for its recognition.
