P.S. on one of the Best Dissertation winners

FYI … the College of Engineering homepage has a short piece worth reading on Khaliah Hughes, one of the winners of A&T’s inaugural Best Dissertation Awards this year. Among the distinctions she has earned: A&T’s first Claire Booth Luce Doctoral Fellow, youngest A&T engineering Ph.D. ever, 4.0 average, and she has a job waiting at one of the world’s most prestigious software companies.  Her research is also featured in the current issue of Evolution, Page 23.
