The Marconi Society is a foundation dedicated to advancements in the Internet and communications that benefit humankind. Each year, a small group of Paul Baran Young Scholars is selected. Nominations will be accepted for the 2018 Young Scholars from February 1 through June 30, 2018. Candidates must be nominated, typically by a professor or research advisor.
Many Young Scholars are Tau Beta Pi members. Being honored as a Young Scholar is often an early step in continued recognition in the field. In addition to rewarding relationships with the best in the field, awardees receive a $4,000 cash prize and travel expenses to attend the Marconi Society Symposium to be held this year in Bologna, Italy.
Several Tau Beta Pi members have been profiled recently on the University of Mississippi School of Engineering Twitter page: @olemissengineer. Two students were recognized as part of the “Senior Spotlight:” Bryce E. Johnson, MS B 2019, mechanical engineering; and Abhijaya Shrestha, MS B 2019, mechanical engineering.
In addition, alumnus Markeeva A. Morgan, MS B ’01, was profiled as the inaugural recipient of the Emerging Philanthropist Award of the Ole Miss Women’s Council for Philanthropy. Morgan is a software manager for The Boeing Company and previous NASA Space Launch System core stage avionics hardware subsystems manager. “I consider encouraging the next generation of thought leaders and innovators to be part of my job as a member of the working citizenry in this country,” he said.
