Clarkson's National Society Of Black Engineers Named National Small Chapter Of The Year
The Clarkson University chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) was named National Small Chapter of the Year at their annual conference held recently in Orlando, Fla.
“We are pleased that the NSBE chapter at Clarkson has been recognized nationally for its substantial accomplishments of the last year,” said Vicki Clark, chapter adviser and assistant to the director of Clarkson’s Pipeline of Educational Programs, which provides support for underrepresented students in science, mathematics, engineering and technology. “The award is a tribute to the hard work and active participation of all of our members.”
NSBE’s National Small Chapter of the Year award recognizes a chapter that has fewer than 35 members for outstanding achievements in academic and technical excellence, leadership, communications, financial vitality, cultural and community awareness, continuous education and career access.
NSBE comprises more than 270 chapters on college and university campuses and is divided into six regions. In February the Clarkson chapter was chosen Region One Small Chapter of the Year from a field of 60 chapters located throughout the northeastern United States and Canada. The chapter was then eligible to compete against other regional winners for the honor of National Small Chapter of the Year.
Jarrell Hutton (Syracuse, N.Y.), a sophomore in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Clarkson, was also recognized at the national conference with a 2001 Achiever’s Plus Member of the Year Award for outstanding academic achievement.
