Winter 2014-15

The Noel E. Moore Achievement Award is given to sophomore, junior and senior student(s) at the beginning of each quarter based on the approved criteria considering the activities of the students in the previous quarter.


The Student Achievement Award recognizes students who take initiative in their coursework and demonstrate a strong desire to learn.  The criteria are based on class work, leadership and performance.

Examples include: improvement in class work; reviewing and learning from previous exams; thoughtful consideration of the homework assignments; participation in class discussions; enthusiastic attention in class;  questioning and showing spirit that lends a more open atmosphere in the classroom; and inquisitiveness and eagerness to make the connection between the class and the world.  Special service to the school and to the Rose community through articles and editorials to the Thorn, leadership in SGA, the AIChE student chapter and other organizations also demonstrate initiative in making a difference.

Academic Year 2014-15

The Jean & Myra Boatman Scholarship Award will be awarded annually to a senior student. The student must be in the upper 50% of his or her graduating class and display creativity in problem solving abilities.


This endowment is established to honor the memory of Jean and Myra Boatman. Jean Boatman graduated from Rose Polytechnic in 1947. His education at Rose was interrupted by WWII. After two years in the Pacific with the Navy, he returned to the chemical engineering program. With his came his wife Myra, and the first of their two children. Jean went on to a successful, 34-year career at 3M as a chemical engineer and plant manager. 3M considered him an extraordinary and creative problem solver. Jean always felt his education at Rose-Hulman was second to none.

This year's Jean & Myra Boatman Scholarship recipient is Jose L. Escandon. Congratulations, Jose!
