The National Science Foundation has awarded two BAE students with NSF Graduate Research Fellowships. This award recognizes outstanding students pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. BAE recipients are: Ms. Emily Tummons, BSE senior; and Mrs. Emily Mangus, 2008 BAE graduate.
Ms. Tummons is a member of the K-State chapters of Golden Key International Honor Society, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, Tau Beta Pi National Engineering Society, Alpha Epsilon Honorary Society for Biological and Agricultural Engineers, Alpha Chi Omega Sorority, and is the first vice president of the K-State Chapter of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. Emily will graduate this spring and plans to attend Michigan State University in the fall, where she has received a University Distinguished Fellowship to pursue a doctoral degree in environmental engineering with a focus on membrane separations for water purification.
Mrs. Mangus, a 2008 K-State summa cum laude graduate in BAE, is currently studying bioengineering at the University of Kansas. In 2010 she received an honorable mention for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
Congratulations to both Emily Tummons and Emily Mangus for their outstanding achievements!
