The University of Maryland President’s Commission on Women’s Issues has honored Clark School Women in Engineering (WIE) Director Paige Smith, Ph.D., with the 2014 Outstanding Exempt Staff Member Award.

Smith and three additional honorees were recognized in March at the 2014 Celebration of Women. Director of Community Engagement Gloria Aparicio Blackwell emceed the event, and Bonnie Thornton Dill, Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities, gave remarks.

In addition to leading WIE, Smith serves as a faculty advisor for the University of Maryland’s Society of Women Engineers, the principal investigator for the Successful Engineering Education and Development and Support program (SEEDS), and the lead for the Mid-Atlantic Girls Collaborative (MAGiC). In 2009, Smith received the WEPAN Distinguished Service Award.
