“I don’t know what it is with me, but I guess I like to improve things,” says Kenn Bates with a chuckle as he reflects on his upcoming elevation to the ASLA Council of Fellows. Bates feels humbled to be recognized on the same level as other fellows who have all exhibited extraordinary work and service because he doesn’t feel that he has done anything other than what is expected of him. “I was raised to give back to the community and do what you can to make it better,” says Bates. “To me, it’s just what I do.”
