"Congratulations to our outstanding students. Well done!" Dr. Li, chair of chemical and paper engineering, said of chemical engineering students Garrett Fisher, Ha Phan, Clarissa Stanton, Muhammad Siddiqui, Joshua Mussche, Brandon Gould, Myriah Kahlmorgan and Adam Fritz, who were named 2016 Armstrong Energy Management scholarship recipients. The Armstrong scholarships are awarded to students pursuing the energy management option within the chemical engineering program at the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The awards are given to juniors and seniors each year by Armstrong International, a multinational and family-owned company that develops intelligent system solutions for steam, air and hot water. When the students were asked why they chose this educational path, the general consensus was that they believed energy management and efficiency is an important concern for most business and industry globally.
