Three undergraduate students from the LSU College of Engineering were awarded scholarships through Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society. 234 scholarships were awarded nationwide.

Robert J. Ingram (chemical and petroleum engineering) won the Record No. 476 scholarship. Danica L. Nguyen (chemical engineering) earned the Stabile No. 74 scholarship. Stephen R. Wilson (chemical engineering) won the Record No. 537 scholarship.

The Record Scholarships, first awarded in 2001, commemorated Leroy E. Record (KS Α ’29) whose generous bequest will provide earnings to support awards in perpetuity. The Stabile Scholarships are named for Vincent A. Stabile (NY Λ ’40), whose gifts to the Association, along with gifts from the Vincent A. Stabile Foundation, will permanently endow scholarships.

Each winner receives a cash award of $2,000 for his or her senior year of engineering study. All Tau Beta Pi scholarships are awarded on the competitive criteria of high scholarship, campus leadership and service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession. All scholars are members of Tau Beta Pi.
