Holloway receives SWE outstanding advisor award
The award "celebrates an outstanding contribution by a SWE advisor to a SWE collegiate section." One such award is given by SWE annually. SWE identifies ideal candidates for the award as faculty advisors who have spent at least three years actively mentoring a collegiate section and linking the students they mentor to the rest of their institution.
Holloway, who has been the director of the Women in Engineering Program since 2001, received a B.S. and M.S. in mechanical engineering from Purdue and worked as a research and development engineer for Cummins, Inc. for nine years. In addition to directing the Women in Engineering Program, Beth serves as Purdue's SWE advisor. She is a past president of WEPAN (Women in Engineering ProActive Network) and was on its board of directors from 2005-'08. She has been a faculty fellow at Earhart Residence Hall, and was on the board of directors of the Engineering Alumni Association from 2006-'09. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Engineering Education.
Holloway will receive her award at the Celebrate SWE! Banquet in Houston, Texas this November.
