2000 Ben's Award
Home Up



Ben Stuart, lead faculty advisor for the 2000 Ohio University WERC team, accepts congratulations from the receiving line for his receipt of the Mike Berger Award as Outstanding Faculty Advisor.  This award was determined from nomination letters written by the students of the various teams from the various universities, who each could nominate their own advisor.  The letter nominating Ben was written by the OU WERC teams and signed by all 23 of the students.

Ben displays his award on stage in front of the receiving line.  The award consisted of a painting, and it was named in honor of a former member of the WERC staff who was instrumental in getting the contest organized, off the ground, and who died recently.  Please do not adjust your set.  That really is Ben with a wider grin on his face than was thought humanly possible.

Receiving congratulations.
