"To be as successful as Todd has been through the range of client projects he has worked on, he unquestionably has to exhibit the characteristics of this award consistently," said Gary Swanson, Westminster director of AV services. "Regardless of the budget level of his client, he gives them his best work every time, the same as he did when he was a student here at Westminster. His work is outstanding."

Hervey and his wife, Pam Dancu Hervey, and twins Cole and Camryn reside in Glen Allen, Va.
