A fellow of ASTM International, Hardison received the Award of Merit in 1989 and became an E07 honorary member in 1988. He also served terms on the ASTM board of directors and the Standing Committee on Technical Committee Operations (COTCO).

A graduate of Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Va., where he received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and his MBA, Hardison held various high level positions during a long career at Newport News Shipbuilding, Newport News, Va., including director of quality, vice president of quality and sector director of quality and technical services. He retired in 2005.
