The Department of Chemical Engineering recognizes the good attitudes that these students show toward learning and congratulates Emma Goodman, Luke McCollough, and Megan Hawksworth for being great role models.

The Department of Chemical Engineering has announced the winners of the Noel E. Moore Achievement Award for fall quarter 2020-21.

The winners are sophomore Emma J. Goodman, junior Luke A. McCollough, and senior Megan G. Hawksworth.

Each quarter, the department recognizes academic excellence on the part of our students. The awards are named in memory of Professor Noel E. Moore, an outstanding educator and faculty leader on campus for 30 years. Moore served for a decade as head of the Department of Chemical Engineering, was an early leader of Operation Catapult, and was a key advocate for making the institute co-educational. He was named an emeritus faculty member after his retirement in 1998. He passed away in 2018.

"Emma Goodman has been chosen for the Noel Moore Award because of her enthusiastic participation in class and strong work ethic," says Professor Adam Nolte, chemical engineering department head. "Emma’s work is always neatly done, and she has a great attitude towards school. She brings a very positive and engaging atmosphere to the classroom. Congratulations on your well-deserved award, Emma!"

"Luke McCollough is being recognized for his hard work and dedication to his courses," Nolte says. "He actively pursues engagement with his classes, both in the classroom and during online lessons. His insightful questions make it clear he is seeking a deeper understanding of the course material. Beyond academics, Luke is a member of Triangle and the Rose-Hulman soccer team. Great work, Luke!"
