Thornton, Ph.D., P.E., who in 2010 received AISC’s Lifetime Achievement Award, will be featured on Jane Pauley’s “Your Life Calling” segment of the NBC TODAY show this coming on Monday, October 24. The segment, which is produced by AARP, will air between 8:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Eastern time.


Thornton was one of founders of Thornton-Tomasetti Group and is now chairman of Charles H. Thornton and Company LLC. With eight colleagues, he also has launched ACE (Architects, Contractors & Engineers), an organization dedicated to getting young people interested in and excited about design and construction. The ACE program has spread to more than 200 cities and has more than 100,000 graduates, many of them low-income and female students – groups that generally don’t pursue careers in the architecture and engineering fields.
