BEACON is very excited to congratulate our Deputy Director Charles Ofria on his selection for the College of Engineering Withrow Distinguished Scholar Senior Award. This is the MSU College of Engineering’s highest award for research and a significant achievement. The award is presented annually to one senior faculty member. A committee selects awardees after receiving nominations from all departments within the College of Engineering. In introducing Prof. Ofria for presentation of the award, BEACON Director Erik Goodman reviewed many of Prof. Ofria’s professional accomplishments, and noted especially his key role in generating the BEACON concept that led to its funding. Prof. Ofria continues to play a large role as Deputy Director and a leader of many projects. As Prof. Goodman stated, “Without Charles, there would be no BEACON.”
