Recent BME Graduate Eric Moyer Honored with University Leadership Awards

Eric Moyer graduated May 5, 2013 with a BS in Biomedical Engineering and was recently awarded with three Leadership Awards from the University through the Ohio Union.

Eric's awards included:
1) The Kaplan Humanitarian Award for leading international outreach work with Solar Education and Outreach.  This group is one of the College of Engineering Project Teams and also what the BME Department has supported the last two years. We have provided solar powered electricity to impoverished communities in Croix-des-Bouquets and Cabaret, Haiti.  For more information on the Solar Education and Outreach program, click here.
2) The Scarlet, Gray, and Green Award for inspiring members of the University community to be more sustainable through programming and involvement with Solar Education and Outreach.
3) Outstanding Senior Award which recognizes seniors who "have made significant contributions to the University and community. To receive this recognition, students must have demonstrated exemplary scholarship, leadership, and service over the course of their college careers. More than a grade point average, scholarship includes contributing to the academic life of the university. Leadership may be found in a concentrated effort to make a difference to one facet of the University or in effective performance of responsibilities in more than one organization. Service involves the unselfish giving of time and effort to better the community. This award is given to less than 1% of Ohio State’s graduating seniors."
