Submitted by Jorge Espino '11 on February 26, 2010

In honor of National Engineers’ week, The Engineering Honor society, Tau Beta Phi, held an induction ceremony for a group of the School of Engineering’s most outstanding students on Friday, February 19, 2010. The ceremony was held in Alumni House after a small but lively reception, and was well-attended by nearly 75 students, faculty members, advisory board members, and more.

Dr. Hadjimichael, Dean of the School of Engineering, began the ceremony with introductory remarks, and then students who were already members of Tau Beta Phi took a leading role by giving short introductions and welcoming those being inducted. The inductors were:

  • Craig Alonzo ’11
  • Christina Klecker ’10
  • Mallory Krupa ’10

Those being inducted into the honor society were:

  • Jennifer Golia ’10
  • Jennifer Lawlor ’10
  • Margarita Jules ’10
  • Philip Spada ’10
  • Ryan Spicer ’11
  • Kaitlin Meszaros ’11
  • William Earls ’11

After the ceremony, keynote speaker Elizabeth Garypie, chief engineer of the Sikorsky Naval Hawk, spoke about the engineering behind such a complex machine. A very interesting slideshow flashed behind her as she explained what brought about such advanced equipment. Students were then allowed time to network with the alumni, faculty, and industry representatives.
