Shipbuilder Leading the Way

Paul Devlin (E21) was recently honored with a Level One On-the-Spot Ethics Award for taking action after he witnessed an automobile accident on his way to work at Newport News Shipbuilding last summer.
Devlin saw the small vehicle go airborne and stopped to assist. He found the driver, who was elderly, hunched over the passenger seat and bleeding. With temperatures approaching 100 degrees, Devlin carried the driver to into the shade and gave him water until the police arrived.
Dave Bolcar, vice president of Engineering, met with Devlin to thank him for his actions and to present his award.
