Congratulations to the Georgia Tech Society of Black Engineers who received the National Distinguished Chapter of the Year award at the 37th annual National Convention in St. Louis, Mo. This is the first time since 1999 the chapter has received this honor.
Additionally, Georgia Tech undergraduate and Georgia Tech Society of Black Engineers member Jacob Tzegeagbe won the Mike Shinn Distinguished Member of the Year award.
The organization also took home several awards from the southeast region including Treasurer and Programs Chair of the Year, TORCH Creative Program of the Year and Regional Distinguished Chapter of the Year.
“These awards and accolades are a direct reflection of our program planning as well as the tremendous support of the Tech community,” said Terence Johnson, president of the Georgia Tech chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers.
The mission of the National Society of Black Engineers is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.
