Advanced Technology Students Earn Career Tools for Recognition of Academic/Performance Success

Six Lone Star College-CyFair students were recently recognized for academic and performance achievements and improvements at the Spring 2015 Advanced Technology Awards program.

Advanced Technology Award WinnerFaculty members in the Drafting, Electronics, Geographic Information Systems, Machining, Petroleum Field Service and Welding programs honored William Sheppard, Kevin Jonathan Dolan, Gary Holmstrom, Robin Lieu, Kevin Nguyen and Jonathan Franco, respectively, with a tool applicable to their chosen careers.

Professors Bill Arnold and Sang Ngo presented Sheppard, “an overachiever and dedicated to drafting,” with a 3d 5 axis mouse.

Electronics Professor Mohamad Hishmeh recognized Dolan for “contributions and many hours of work on the team project” with a digital mulit-meter.

Holmstrom earned a hand-held GPS unit for his near perfect score in all three GIS courses, willingness to assist other students and active promotion of GIS courses.

“The quality of his lecture and lab work puts him in the upper echelon of his cohort,” Professor Michael Konvicka said. “And he has shown significant enthusiasm for the subject matter.”

Machining Professor Andrew Jones said Lieu, who had no work experience and was pursuing his associate degree, earned a 0”-1” O.D. micrometer and 6” dial caliper for “perfect attendance and great improvement and performance.”

Nguyen also received a 0”-1” O.D. micrometer and 6” dial caliper for his dedication reflected in perfect attendance in HYDR course, earning the highest grades in Pumps and Compressors and Hydraulics and Pneumatics courses as well as asking perceptive questions.

“He shows interest in learning the material, not just to pass the course, but to gain a deep understanding of it, said Professor Jared Cammon. “I also find being willing to help others is an admirable quality and shows integrity.”
