Samuel Dayton, a senior in mechanical engineering, and Eric Pietrowicz, a senior in electrical engineering, were awarded The Tau Beta Pi Scholarship for Michigan Kappa based on their academic achievements and activities outside the classroom. Dayton serves as a mentor in the Peer Student Success Team in the Lee Honors College. Pietrowicz co-founded the WMU Chapter of Engineers without Borders. Tau Beta Pi is an honor society that recognizes “distinguished scholarship and exemplary character’’ among engineering students. The Tau Beta Pi national organization selected WMU’s Michigan Kappa Chapter for the scholarship based on “three years of outstanding service and activities.” The local chapter and the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences matched these scholarship funds. Only 19 of about 240 chapters earned this award. The chapter was recently notified that it has earned its third consecutive such award, enabling it to offer another scholarship next semester.
