OSA committee presented OSA Excellence Award
The OSA student chapter committee was awarded an OSA excellence award at the society’s annual Frontiers in Optics (FiO) meeting for the second year running!
The President of the committee, Kate Sloyan, was presented with the excellence award and the $1000 prize for the dedication, hard work and outstanding commitment to the OSA by the Southampton chapter during FiO, which this year was held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center in Rochester, NY, USA .
The OSA excellence awards are presented annually at FiO to two student chapters and two local sections, and are in recognition of their outstanding achievements in advocacy and outreach in their local communities, as well as academic and professional development programming for their members.
This marks the fourth time that the Southampton OSA student chapter has won an excellence award for their work. The commitees of 2001, 2007 and 2009 were also presented with the award.
