One thought on “Graduate research and teaching excellence awards announced

  1. As far as I know, Ted Bechtum and Chris Koza of CCEE were the only recipients of research excellence awards in the college. What is more, of all MS graduates at ISU, last Fall! This is just from the commencement program.
