May 15, 2015, Patrick Ahearn was inducted into the College of Fellows in The American Institute of Architects.

The College of Fellows is composed of members of the Institute who are elevated to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievement of the architect as an individual, but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society.

Patrick reflects on the last 42 years of his practice and the journey it is has been. “It is a day of celebration for me and I am looking forward to many years in the future to continue the good works that I do.” Patrick attended the ceremony with his wife, daughter, and sister.  The ceremony was held in the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia.
