Edward E. McCormick (MArch 1974 Architecture) will be inducted into the Davenport Central High School Hall of Honor in Davenport, Iowa, on April 19. McCormick graduated from the school in 1963. The plaque in his honor will read as follows:
Edward’s passion for architecture and its impact on society has led him to work to improve the lives of senior citizens by planning and designing spaces that provide them shelter, stability and self-sufficiency. Through his work in El Paso and Lubbock, Texas, he has elevated the PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) health care model not only locally but nationally. He has chaired or served on executive committees for the City of El Paso and has held leadership positions with both the Greater El Paso Chamber of Commerce and the El Paso Association of Home Builders.
He mentors today’s youth by working with students interested in architecture from El Paso and Ysleta schools, El Paso Community College and Texas Tech University. Edward has an enduring love for the arts. He has been director and chairman of El Paso Pro Musica, the El Paso Symphony Orchestra, Ballet El Paso, El Paso Opera and created a Leadership Arts program for El Paso, Texas, Southern New Mexico and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
