Dr. Catherine Johnson, associate professor of mining and explosives engineering, has been named the Robert H. Quenon Associate Professor of mining engineering. She began serving in this role Thursday, Sept. 1.
“I am honored to receive this title and to be recognized for my work in the field of mining engineering,” says Johnson. “Being a leader in the field has always been my goal. The Quenon award enables me to continue this path while working in new research directions.”
Johnson says the award will fund new students and assist them in reaching their academic and professional goals. The award is named for the late Robert H. Quenon, who was president and board chair of Peabody Holding Co. of St. Louis. It was established to attract experienced mining engineers to Missouri S&T.
