IME’s top students were honored in April at the 57th Annual Student Recognition Luncheon provided by Clausing Industrial Inc.

The 2010 IME Outstanding Student Awards included four undergraduate seniors, five graduate students, and three service award winners.

Joseph Mydosh, manufacturing technology (MFT), and James Burns, industrial and entrepreneurial engineering (IEE), earned both IME and CEAS dean’s awards in their respective majors.

Brandon Gorton won the IME award in engineering management (UEM), and Joseph Adams won the IME award in engineering design technology (EDT)

Graduate students honored as outstanding students were Christopher Lininger, engineering management (ENMM); Courtney Rawlings, manufacturing (MNEM); Trent Kenworthy, industrial engineering (IENM); Kari Frikken, operations research (OPRM); and Erik Kostandyan, IME’s top industrial engineering Ph.D. student (IEND).

Outstanding Service Awards were presented to Madeline McAuley, a manufacturing grad student for her continuing work on the IME blog and Web site; John Jacobs, an electrical engineering student who has served in the IME office for the last two years; and Norman Douglas, a recently retired lab instructor.

Also lauded were IME’s presidential scholar, Matthew Scarbrough, a UEM senior and the CEAS dean’s outstanding UEM student; Christopher Reniger, the dean’s outstanding EGR student; and a number of scholarship and award winners.

IME Chair Paul Engelmann praised the award winners and the faculty who support them and acknowledged the officers and advisors of seven student societies.

Engelmann challenged the winners, society officers, and other future leaders to envision every decision they make as keys to who they will become.

The event was organized by Tom Swartz, IME Scholarship and Awards Committee chair, and Drs. Steven Butt, Kailash Bafna, and Jorge Rodriguez.

Klaz Welch, Mary Fosburg, and John Jacobs, IME office administrators, were acknowledged for their support in organizing the luncheon.
