Dr. David Richardson, associate professor emeritus of materials science and engineering, was recently inducted into the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association (MAPA) Hall of Fame. Richardson, who also earned master’s and Ph.D. degrees in civil engineering from S&T, has one more award he can add to his mantle, as he was recently inducted into the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association (MAPA) Hall of Fame.
MAPA is an industry association that represents asphalt contractors across the state and promotes quality asphalt materials, quality work and accountability for the industry.
Richardson says he has been a Missouri S&T Miner in one form or another for most of his life. He earned his three degrees in civil engineering in 1971, 1973 and 1984.
After earning his Ph.D., he entered the classroom and research laboratories as a faculty member at the university, where he stayed until retiring in 2015. However, even in retirement, Richardson has still been active at the university, working with students and faculty and being involved in professional conferences and technical activities.
