Kathleen Hendrick, a mechanical engineering rising senior, has been chosen as a 2011-2012 Philip Merrill Presidential Scholar. She named Professor David Lovell as the faculty mentor who has made the most impact on her academic achievement.

Professor Lovell will be honored at a special workshop, hosted by the Center for Teaching Excellence, in November 2011.

Hendrick met Lovell during her freshman year through Engineers Without Borders. She says, ?He has taught me more about engineering than any textbook could?most importantly: how to think like an engineer.?

She adds, ?There is no other person you want with you when traveling to a developing country to construct an engineering project.?

She hopes other students are inspired to get involved with EWB. ?Working alongside other students and the professional engineering mentors is an exciting collaborative experience that can't always be found in the classroom.?
