PNC Student Achiever, Equity & Inclusion Luncheon, & BEYA Award (Feb. 2019)

On February 13, during the collegiate men’s basketball game between Bradley University and Loyola University Chicago, Heather R. Hawkins, IL D 2019, was recognized as the #PNCStudentAchiever. The PNC Student Achievers program is designed to acknowledge deserving students who display well-rounded achievement and leadership in the classroom, in the community and in competition.

Hawkins is a senior industrial engineering who serves on the executive boards for APICS student chapter, Bradley SERVE, the honors advisory council, National Society of Leadership and Success, and Tau Beta Pi. Visit the Bradley Braves Facebook page for more information.


A recent event focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion at the University of Michigan was co-hosted by the Michigan Gamma Chapter of Tau Beta Pi. Roughly 50 attendees gathered for the first in a series of luncheons in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. at the Lurie Biomedical Engineering Building.

According to the article from The Michigan Daily, the event was organized by Arushi Agarwal, MI G 2019, the chapter’s campus outreach officer. She also introduced the speakers and explained the purpose of the luncheon. “I think the goal (of the luncheon series) is really to give engineers exposure to something beyond just technical fields,” Agarwal said.


At last week’s 33rd annual Black Engineer of the Year Award Stem Global Competitiveness Conference, Christopher A. Belton, NC E ’07, received the Admiral Michelle Howard Legacy Award. Belton is a lead test engineer at Newport News Shipbuilding.

He received his bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering from North Carolina A&T State University. Read the press release to see the names of seven other Huntington Ingalls Industries employees that received awards during the conference.
