“My time on the Teaching Awards and Corporate Innovations Award committee has been well worth it. Recognizing someone’s achievement lets them know how much we as a community appreciate their work. And, to see their work recognized and celebrated is a wonderful thing.” – Former IEEE Awards Volunteer, Katie Wilson
