The Board of Directors of the Air & Waste Management Association has selected CEE’s John D. Tickle Professor, Joshua Fu, to receive the Association’s 2018 Lyman A. Ripperton Environmental Educator Award. He is to be recognized at our 111th Annual Conference & Exhibition in Hartford during the Honors & Awards Luncheon and Ceremony, which will be held on Friday, June 28, 2018.
The Lyman A. Ripperton Award, established by resolution of the Board of Directors on November 13, 1980, is for distinguished achievement as an educator in some field of air pollution control. It is awarded to an individual, who by precept and example, has inspired students to achieve excellence in all their professional and social endeavors. It recognizes the abilities that only a few in the education profession possess – to be able to teach with rigor, humor, humility, and pride. The recipients of this award are representative of the educators we would have chosen if we had a choice. They are known by the accomplishments of their students.
