Two undergraduate students in the UMD Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE) have received Dean’s Awards this year: Soliver Fusi accepted the Kim Borsavage and Pamela J. Stone Student Award for Outstanding Service, while Kenya Colvin accepted the A. James Clark School of Engineering Leadership Award.  These students will be honored at the 2018 Annual Undergraduate Dean’s Awards Ceremony taking place on Wednesday, April 11, in the Stamp Student Union.

Fusi – majoring in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Technology Entrepreneurship – has served as President of the Chem-E-Car Team, a Clark School Ambassador, Academic Excellence Chair for the National Society of Black Engineers, and is currently the Vice President of the Chemical Engineering Honors Society.  She has worked as a teaching assistant in various chemical engineering courses, and is a mentor for both ChBE and the Clark School.  Fusi is set to graduate in May, and will begin her Ph.D. studies at the University of California, Berkeley, in the fall.

Colvin is a member of the Honors College and has received her citation from the Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students Honors Program. She serves as an ambassador for both the Honors College and the Clark School. Colvin is also a Ronald E. McNair Scholar, conducting research in the Fischell Department of Bioengineering. Her current research is focused on designing an automated point-of-care diagnostic tool powered by the chemical temperature control of phase change materials. Calvin is on track to complete her studies in the fall of 2018.

The annual Engineering Honors and Awards Ceremony recognizes undergraduate students for outstanding excellence in academics, leadership and service. For additional information on past ceremonies, please see the Clark School web page.
