CHAD D. GRISWOLD WINS BARRY M. GOLDWATER SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
Chad D. Griswold of Sturgis was recently awarded the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship. Griswold is a metallurgical engineering major at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T).
The scholarship, created to pay tribute to Senator Barry M. Goldwater, was established by the United States Congress to foster and encourage excellence in science and mathematics. The Board of Trustees awarded 309 scholarships for the 2000- 2001 academic year to undergraduate sophomores and juniors from the United States and Puerto Rico.
“ I feel very proud to receive this award,” said Griswold, “ not only for myself, but for the school as well. This type of recognition puts out a positive attitude for our small school.”
SDSM& T nominated Griswold because of his valuable research within the Materials and Metallurgical Engineering Department. While taking a full- time course load, Griswold co- authored a national presentation and a peer- reviewed journal article. In addition, he contributed extensive data research to a presentation at the prestigious Gordon Research Conference.
“ I can’t say enough about Chad,” said Dr. Jon Kellar, Associate Professor, Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering. “ He is very unique in that he has great technical and creative abilities. I think he serves as a great role model for all SDSM& T students.”
The one- and two- year scholarships will cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board up to a maximum of $ 7,500 per year.
