Clarkson University Students Earn Tau Beta Pi Scholarships

Three Clarkson University juniors have been awarded 2009-2010 scholarships by Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society.

Casey M. Laush a civil engineering major from Colchester, Vt., Colin D. Gettig, an interdisciplinary engineering & management and computer science major from Averill Park, N.Y., and Kirsten A. Lacksonen, an interdisciplinary engineering & management major from Menomonie, Wisc., will each receive a cash award of $2,000 for their senior year of engineering study.

Tau Beta Pi Scholarships are awarded to junior members on a competitive basis of high scholarship, campus leadership and service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession. Only 234 of scholarships were awarded nationwide to members of the 241 chapters of Tau Beta Pi.

Tau Beta Pi is the world’s largest engineering society. Membership represents the highest honor to be obtained by an engineering student and is awarded on the basis of high scholarship and exemplary character.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in six alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
