Edward T. Bryand Recognition Banquet

History of the Edward T. Bryand Recognition Banquet

Bryand-youngIn 1979, Engineering Dean Jim Clapp organized the College Recognition Committee, named after alumnus Edward T. Bryand ’52, with all engineering departments, physics and chemistry to serve on the committee.

The first College Recognition Banquet was held in 1980. Criteria were established for two awards: Ashley S. Campbell Award and the Edward T. Bryand Distinguished Engineering Award.

Other awards for individuals and students were added through the years and the awards have continued every year since 1980, including the Leila C. Lowell Award for staff members that began in 1983.

The ceremony happens in November each year and has become the College of Engineering’s most prized event where our faculty and staff are recognized for their dedication and achievements in engineering, research, and public service.
