The department created this award in honor of Diane Harris, former student services manager, who retired in 2007 after 20+ years of service. Ms. Harris held her position with great dedication and loyalty and each year faculty nominate graduating student(s) who served the department well in addition to being leaders among their peers.

Stephani Page is a senior graduate student in the laboratory of Drs. Bob Bourret and Ruth Silversmith. Stephani earned her BS in Chemical Engineering and MS in Biology from North Carolina A&T State University.
