Congratulations to ESSIE civil engineering alumna Dr. Jeremy Waisome for receiving the the 2017-2018 Golden Torch Award for the Mike Shinn Distinguished Member of the Year (Female) at the National Society of Black Engineers’ (NSBE) ceremony on March 24th during the organization’s 44th national convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The Golden Torch Award is a NSBE scholarship presented to members who qualify in areas of academic excellence, development of leadership skills and community involvement through participation in NSBE programs and other activities.
Each year, NSBE’s Golden Torch Awards honors individuals, companies, and institutions that have advanced opportunities for African Americans in the engineering field. From serving as role models for others to producing consistent, highly distinguished bodies of work, the Golden Torch Awards serve to recognize accomplishments that have enriched engineers and the world with intelligence, talent and vision.
Waisome hopes that receiving the Mike Shinn Distinguished Member of the Year Award will help inspire the many students she encounters in her academic career to follow the tenets of NSBE to excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.
