the creation of William Troxler, founder of Troxler Electronic

reinstituted the event in memory of Troxler for his efforts to help develop
the next generation of industry leaders. Troxler passed away in June 2000.
years after its founding, the IRF Fellowship Program, administered through the
International Road Educational Foundation, remains the organization’s “crown
jewel,” commented IRF chairman and Mayor of Riyadh, Abdullah A. Al-Mogbel.

designed to assist the next generation of road professional from developing
countries, and the Program has a multiplier effect in the transfer of knowledge
by providing graduate-level education to individuals who are mandated to return
to their home countries after graduation,” said Al-Mogbel.
“The IRF is pleased to partner with AEM in re-launching the William F. Troxler
Memorial Golf Tournament at the 2013 World of Asphalt,” added C. Patrick
