In a ceremony at Mahr Federal headquarters on July 13, long-time Mahr Federal employee Frederick G. Parsons was honored by ASME (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers) with the Patrick Higgins Medal. This recognition is for outstanding dedication and effectiveness in developing and promoting a range of standards in dimensional metrology, surface metrology and engineering specifications.
 
The Patrick Higgins Medal was established in 2007 in remembrance of Patrick Higgins, a past V.P. of the standardization department for ASME. The award recognizes consensus building leadership working to align national and international standards development in these areas.
 
An ASME member, Parsons currently serves on the society’s board on standardization and testing and has served on many committees throughout the years. He was the chair of the ASME U.S. TAG from 1996 to 2011 and contributed toward the coordination of geometric tolerance issues with ISO TC-216. Parsons also often served as the U.S. head of delegation and spoke for the U.S. at the plenary session. In 1986, he was one of the founders of the American Society for Precision Engineering.
