Four ChBE Majors Receive 2012 Undergraduate Student Awards

At the General Award Ceremony on April 20, several ChBE students received awards for their hard work.

Elliot J. Graziano received the Class of 1911 Prize Scholarship. This award honors seniors of engaging personality, who from matriculation as freshmen to their senior year have made the most progress as measured both by academic record and by successful participation in extracurricular activities of enduring worth. In addition to his scholarly achievements, Elliott is VP of the student AIChE chapter and a member of the Tufts club baseball team. He is also a great person to talk to.

Scott D. McArthur received the Frederick Melvin Ellis Prize, awarded to students who have demonstrated marked athletic versatility, a modest manner, successful academic achievement, and the potential for effective leadership of youth. Scott is the captain of the Track and Field team, the Cross-Country team, and the president of Tufts Engineers Without Borders. He also served as a Tufts Peer Teacher, guiding incoming students and mentoring them.

Sanya T. Ramjattan received the Lt. Commander Robert James Manning Memorial Prize, awarded to students who are industrious, competent, and enthusiastic and who show the same commitment to excellence that Manning demonstrated throughout his life. Sanya is an excellent student and researcher in the department, is involved as a Tufts Orientation Leader, and serves on the boards of the Tufts student chapter of AIChE, the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society, and the Tufts International Club.

Yushi Wang received the Association of Tufts Alumnae Seventy-fifth Anniversary Award. This prize honors women students who have provided meritorious service to the Tufts University community, adding to the university by their presence. Yushi has a strong record of volunteering, with children: she has been an active participant of Tufts Literacy Corp, tutoring students in math, mentored a youth as part of the Tufts Chinese Student Association Big Sister program, and served with the Tufts Student Teacher Outreach Program (STOMP).

Scott McArthur was presented with the Alumni Association Senior Award on March 31, 2012. He was one of twelve Tufts seniors to receive this honor, which recognizes: (a) outstanding student leadership, (b) significant academic achievement, (c) extraordinary service to Tufts and the greater community, and (d) demonstrated potential to be an alumni leader. Such a person serves as an example for their peers and all alumni by demonstrating service, loyalty, commitment, and leadership to Tufts and/or their community. We are proud of Scott and his accomplishments.
