UT Student Wins Award for Master’s Thesis – Hey, I know her!
Student Wins AWWA Academic Achievement Award for Master’s Thesis
Ashlynn Stillwell, doctoral student in civil engineering at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, has been selected to receive the American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) second place 2011 Academic Achievement Award for best master’s thesis.
The award, which includes a $1,500 prize, will be formally presented to Stillwell during a plenary session at the AWWA’s 130th Annual Conference and Exposition June 12-16 in Washington, D.C.
Each master’s thesis entry was evaluated by members of the award committee on the basis of originality, practical application, value to the water supply field, potential value as a reference and overall clarity of the presentation.
I went to the 1999 Missouri Scholars Academy with Ashlynn and we both took the Engineering Major course together. We’ve certainly come along way since then. Congrats Ashlynn!
