For Immediate Release

Washington, DC (October 2023)


KCCT Designer Alexis Claros has been selected for the Davis J. Varner Paths to Licensure Program, which provides coaching and a network of resources to inspire and help promising designers navigate and pass their exams. Ten emerging professions were selected based on their demonstrated proven career success, commitment to the profession, and their desire to achieve licensure. The eight-month program consists of six sessions, each tailored to enhancing the ability to study and pass the Architect Registration Examination (ARE).

 “This opportunity has given me new energy and helped me hone in on the goal of becoming licensed,” said Claros. “The program has already provided me with valuable resources and access to a network of hungry designers with a vast range of experience going through a similar process.”

David J. Varner, FAIA was a transformative member of the Washington, DC architectural community and a firm believer in the value of an integrated design process that embraces clients, stakeholders, communities, and partners to make that possible. Prior to his death in 2021, he was a tireless advocate for architects to be of greater service to society in as many forms as possible. This program was founded in honor of his legacy.
