Congrats to Jonathan and Avery: HRC Engineers announced that Avery Ward P.E. and Jonathan Tilenis P.E. have completed the licensure process for their profession.

This month, the two civil engineers each successfully completed the rigorous process required to become licensed as a Professional Engineer (P.E.)—giving them the right to use the P.E. designation after their names.

“Jonathan and Avery have met the engineering profession’s highest standard of competence,” said Howard B. Ray P.E., president of HRC Engineers. “These two outstanding professionals have traveled an eight-year plus
journey, achieving the education, experience and exam goals of our profession.”

Tilenis joined HRC in 2015. Key projects as an Engineer in Training (E.I.T.) include providing design services for an addition to Shaw High School in Columbus, Ga., and for an addition to Douglas County High School in Douglasville, Ga. He graduated from Kennesaw State University with a degree in civil engineering in 2017, and lives in Austell, Ga.

Ward joined the firm in early 2021 as project engineer. He previously worked at an engineering firm located in Roswell, Ga. He also held two internships: One in high school, and one while earning his BS in civil
engineering from Kennesaw State University, from which he graduated in 2018. Ward lives in Temple, Ga.

The HRC team of 35+ professionals now includes three licensed engineers: Ray, Tilenis and Ward. Only a licensed engineer can prepare, sign, seal and submit engineering plans and drawings.

“We’re proud of these individuals’ accomplishments and look forward to expanding our firm’s ability to meet the civil engineering needs of our municipal, residential and commercial/industrial clients,” said Ray.
