Fall 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.

The above students are examples of the many good students we have at Rose-Hulman. The Chemical Engineering Department would like to recognize the good attitudes that these students show towards learning and congratulate Trent, Casey, and Zeyad for being great role models.

Trent J. Tatlock (Sophomore)

Trent Tatlock is recognized for the Noel Moore Award for his hard work and inquisitiveness in his academic and extracurricular pursuits. Qualities such as these featured prominently in his recent internships with a plastics company. Congratulations, Trent!

Casey M. Mihal (Junior)

Casey Mihal is recognized for the Noel Moore Award for his good work, perseverance, and respectful attitude inside and outside of the classroom. Casey's effort to advance a strong Chem-E-Car team has attracted enough members to enable the team to field two cars at the regional competitition, a first for RHIT. Casey serves the community and the profession through his work, serving as a Homework Hotline tutor as well as researching the synthesis of molecules to help treat cancer. Great work, Casey!

He provides a positive example for his classmates. Congratulations, Zeyad!



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!
