San Antonio, Texas, November 8, 2018 – The Grand Lodge of Texas of the Freemasons acknowledged Pfluger Architect’s Aline Yoldi as a “Master Builder” at the cornerstone ceremony on August 9, 2017 for the E.L. Turbon Student Center at St. Philip’s College.
Yoldi is a Project Manager and has worked for Pfluger since 2008. She is a Registered Architect and Registered Interior Designer whose experience includes educational and municipal facilities. She was the Lead Architect on the Turbon Center.
Grand Master, Jerry N. Kirby, had to make a slight change to the traditional text, switching “Brother Architect” to “Sister Architect.” He also noted that, to his knowledge, Yoldi was the first female architect recognized as a Master Builder in the more than 150-year history of the lodge.
Alamo Masonic Lodge #44, AF & AM participated in capital improvement programs for the redevelopment of two St. Philip’s projects: the Turbon Center and the Good Samaritan Veterans Outreach & Transition Center. Both properties, in Masonic tradition, have a symbolic cornerstone embedded in the wall at the northeast corner of the buildings.
