As we come to the one year anniversary of our brother, Andy Padilla's death, it's time to reflect upon his successful and accomplished career. Andy worked hard and was the first member of our family to obtain his bachelor's degree. He always was a high achiever and served in several roles at the Gas Company while also serving as a member of both the AACE International and NM Sections. Andy was the first Hispanic to serve as a Section Officer and Section President for NM and the only person in the state to hold a Certified Cost Consultant and Registered Commercial Gas Consultant designation simultaneously from 1998-2012. In June 2009 at the AACEI Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington Andy was chosen from among eight Regional Directors and designated the "Outstanding Regional Director" by the Vice President of Regions and the AACE Board of Directors. He was the 7th AACE International recipient of this award and first Hispanic recipient in AACE International history. In January, 2010 his biographical information was featured in AACE's Cost Engineering Journal for membership election consideration as a candidate for AACE Vice President Regions and in March 2010 he was elected to serve a 2 year term, becoming the first NM Section Member and first NM Section Hispanic to serve in that position. On October 1, 2010 he resigned as AACE's VP Regions, due to health reasons.

Our brother was a very proud man, but what he may not have always known is that we were also very proud of him! We ALL miss and love you very much bro.
