Major General Harold J. Greene, a two-star Army general, was killed at a military academy this week near Kabul. Greene, NY G ’80, “was an engineer who rose through the ranks as an expert in developing and fielding the Army’s war materiel.” Originally from Schenectady, NY, he served for 34 years in the U.S. Army and “earned a reputation as an inspiring leader with a sense of humility.” He had been in Afghanistan since January, serving as deputy commander of a support command called the Combined Security Transition Command.
Greene earned a bachelor of science degree in materials engineering and a master’s degree in industrial engineering, both from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Click here for more biographical information
The Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) has selected Taylor P. Williams, OH G 2011, as a member of the 2014 class of Teaching Fellows. Williams is currently a teacher at Todd Beamer High School in Washington. According to his fellowship bio, he was influenced to become a teacher by his high school physics teacher and cross country coach.
Before pursuing a career in teaching, Williams earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Ohio State University. After three summer internships with Procter & Gamble, he got his teaching certification and took a position with Teach For America. “As a teacher, he draws upon his industry experience to help students to understand the connection between math and science, and future career options.”
