WASHINGTON, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Stars and Stripes Foundation announced today that H. Kent Haugerud, of Flagstaff, Arizona, has been appointed to serve an eight-year term as a member of its Board of Directors. Mr. Haugerud, a 1995 honors graduate of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, has been employed by the state of Arizona as an Environmental Engineer since 1998. His duties include engineering plan design, issuance of construction permits, all phases of enforcement, as well as inspection responsibilities for Title V air quality matters, wastewater treatment plants, municipal public water facilities and storm water permitted facilities in Northern Arizona.
Prior to joining the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, Mr. Haugerud worked with the Dept. of Defense at Luke Air Force Base and at Otis Air Force Base in Maine on the largest DOD Superfund site. Earlier, while employed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, he designed a computer model for the drinking water system for that facility and trained other engineers to utilize the concept.
The Stars and Stripes Foundation, an offshoot of the venerable Stars and Stripes newspaper, is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to the betterment of those serving in the military, as well as those men and women who have completed their tours of duty on behalf of the United States Armed Forces. It is one of the very few such efforts where 100% of all contributions go to benefit needy recipients rather than to salary, fundraising expenses, perks for employees and other overhead costs typical of the majority of eleemosynary institutions.
