Alumna named 2011 Tau Beta Pi Laureate

Chemical engineering alumna Ann Gleason has been named a 2011 Tau Beta Pi (TBP) Laureate. The award follows her amazing soccer career at Iowa State and her spring 2011 graduation with the distinction of Summa Cum Laude, a title bestowed upon graduates with a cumulative GPA of 3.9 or higher.

The TBP Laureate Program was established in 1982 to recognize extraordinary engineering students who have excelled in areas beyond their technical majors. Gleason has been honored in response to her achievements in athletics as well as academics.

Gleason was the varsity goalie for Iowa State’s soccer team for four years. During that time she accumulated many honors including, Iowa State’s all-time leader in career wins, shutouts, and saves, along with leading the Big 12 Conference in saves for two years. She was also named an ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America second team in 2009, a feat no other Cyclone has accomplished.
