Elise Kittrell, a graduate student in environmental engineering, and Kevin Clark, a senior in biological sciences, were awarded the Donald D. Myers Scholarship in recognition of their extraordinary service to the community and campus for the 2013-2014 school year at Missouri S&T’s 10th annual student leaders’ awards ceremony in the Havener Center on May 1.
“Elise and Kevin were selected from a very competitive pool of applicants because of the meaningful impact they’ve made through their service, their ability to lead and inspire others, and their commitment to continue serving throughout their lives,” said Kathy Withrow, a member of the student selection committee.
Kittrell has combined her academic studies with a pursuit of environmental justice and she worked to engage young girls in STEM education.
Clark serves as a mentor and hunger advocate and invites his peers to participate, multiplying his impact on the local community.
The scholarship is named for Dr. Donald D. Myers, a professor of engineering management at Missouri S&T for more than 30 years. The Donald D. Myers Scholarship, established in 2009 by his family with the generous contributions of his many friends, is an annual tribute to his extraordinary life of service.
The scholarship recognizes and supports Missouri S&T students who have made a significant contribution to the community or campus through their service.
