Kudos for SIAM Student Chapter LeadersJune 12, 2007
Pearl Flath received a SIAM Student Chapter Certificate of Recognition from faculty advisers Todd Arbogast (right) and Clint Dawson at the “Petascale Lecture,” Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, University of Texas at Austin.
Under a program instituted by the SIAM education committee, the first set of SIAM Student Chapter Certificates of Recognition were awarded this year to students who have made exceptional contributions to their SIAM student chapters.
"Many of the SIAM student chapters have become vibrant groups with interesting programs that serve diverse groups of students on campus," says SIAM executive director James Crowley. "We wanted to recognize the students---identified by their chapter advisers---who have given their talent and time to make their chapters so successful."
