Seven electrical engineering seniors and recent graduates have received
$5,000 Grainger
Power Engineering Awards
from the electrical engineering department at
Missouri University of Science and Technology.

The Power Engineering Awards are funded by a $1.3 million endowment from The Grainger
of Chicago. Missouri S&T is recognized by Grainger for its
ability to attract top students and educate quality engineers and is one of
only six universities in the nation chosen to receive such funding.

Each spring, the Grainger Power Engineering Award is presented to up to 12
electrical engineering graduate and undergraduate students who plan to pursue
careers in power engineering. Selection of recipients is based on academic
performance, exhibited interest in power engineering and extra-curricular

To be eligible for this year’s award, students must have graduated with
degrees in electrical engineering in August or December of 2007 or May 2008 and
have emphasized their course work in power engineering. All of the recipients
had significant power engineering experience, either through company
internships, research projects or design projects.

2008 recipients of the Power Engineering Awards are:

Warren Brooks of Rogersville, Mo., who receive a bachelor of science
degree in electrical engineering in 2007

Clinton Cottrell, a senior in electrical engineering from Memphis,

Stacey Graybeal, a senior in electrical engineering from Olathe,

Brian Johnston of Murfreesboro, Tenn., a 2007 electrical engineering

Gavin Jones of Brookfield, Mo., a 2007 electrical engineering
