ISE senior Hannah Wetmore blows away the committee to earn the College of Engineering’s Faculty Senior Scholar Award
Hannah Wetmore, rising ISE senior, received the College of Engineering’s (COE) Faculty Senior Scholar Award for 2015. Each of the 12 departments within the college chooses a nominee who then completes an essay and interviews with the selection committee. “Hannah’s application stood out,” said ISE professor and selection committee member, Dr. Rohan Shirwaiker. “She did a fantastic job on her interview highlighting the larger role ISE has played in her life and ways she is trying to give back to the community.” Based on strength of both her application and her interview, the committee selected Wetmore by a clear majority.
“I feel honored to receive the award and represent the ISE Department at NC State,” said Wetmore. “It is encouraging to know that others see the value in what I have been able to achieve thus far with my industrial engineering degree. I hope to become an industrial engineer in healthcare after I graduate because I want to have a strong, positive impact on human experiences.”
Each year the COE gives the Faculty Senior Scholar Award to the top rising engineering senior. They select students based on academic excellence, intellectual breadth and depth of character. Wetmore received a plaque and a monetary award. The ISE department also displays a plaque that has all past winners.
