As part of the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Top 20 Under 40, Austin Moore, AIA, has been recognized for his strong leadership, commitment to the community, and healthcare design expertise. The 2022 recipients were honored at the awards gala on January 19. Austin Moore, AIA, and Britni Wilkens, IIDA, were both award recipients representing Parkhill in this year's Lubbock Chamber Top 20 Under 40.

"Austin continuously demonstrates the traits and skills that I believe distinguish him as one of the rising young professionals in Lubbock," said Healthcare Studio Leader Corey Branch, AIA. "He is a strong leader in Parkhill’s Healthcare Studio, leading both by example as well as mentoring others in the firm."

Austin is an active member of the community. He donates much of his time to the Boy Scouts of America, spending many weekends at the local Boy Scout Camp leading groups performing maintenance and improving the facilities. Additionally, he has taken many groups to National Boy Scout events. His passion for serving the Boy Scouts is evident in the way he unselfishly serves in any way that is needed.

Austin also volunteers in multiple professional organizations, including the American Institute of Architects, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, and the Texas Society of Architects. He volunteers his time and talents in taking leadership roles in these groups and has spent many hours of involvement. Most recently, he headed the local AIA chapter’s golf tournament, which provides scholarships for the College of Architecture at AIA. 

Austin joined Parkhill in 2014 and has since been an integral part of design teams for several healthcare clients including Covenant Health, University Medical Center, Mitchell County Hospital, and Regence Health Network. 

"He has continually taken greater leadership roles within our firm," Corey said. "He has shown a willingness to take on additional roles and responsibilities. He has endless curiosity and is always looking to learn something new. He also serves in a leadership role on several committees, including our practice's Project Management Champion. Within our firm, he is looked to as a person that is emerging as an eager mentor and someone others look to as a peer to emulate."
