Alumni Association Recognizes Students
Two College of Engineering students recently received Leadership awards from the Nebraska Alumni Association. The Shane Osborn Award, named for the 1996 UNL graduate and Navy lieutenant, went to Jared D. Wall, ’05, of Madison, S.D. Meghan M. Lyons, ’05, an electrical engineering major from Brookings, S.D., is the recipient of the Vann Leadership Award, established by the late Howard Vann and his wife Judy.
Wall, an industrial engineering major and Air Force ROTC cadet, seeks out leadership opportunities and is ever-present during volunteer and booster activities. His leadership in preparing the ROTC sophomore class for field training resulted in four distinguished graduates and two superior performers. He has chosen the career path of military aviation.
Lyons was a senior in the J.D. Edwards Honors Program, where she worked for Stanley Senior Technologies and the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. She has served as president of the College of Engineering Student Advisory Board and vice president of Chi Omega sorority. She also is a member of Mortar Board senior honorary, served as a New Student Enrollment orientation leader and was a participant in LeaderShape Nebraska 2002.
