An Ohio University student studying electrical engineering at the Russ College of Engineering and Technology has been selected for a scholarship from Tau Beta Pi, the nation's second-oldest honor society.
Lauren H. Logan, a fifth-year student from Albany who will earn degrees in electrical engineering and geological science next June, was awarded a senior level Tau Beta Phi scholarship of $2,000. Logan was one of 428 applicants. The society awarded 234 scholarships.
Active in both academics and extracurricular activities, Logan is a Manasseh Cutler Scholar and participated in the Russ College's select Robe Leadership Institute. She is a supplemental instruction leader for the Department of Chemistry, having helped instruct courses. She also served as president for Students Teaching About Racism in Society (STARS) and as the electrical engineering representative on the Ohio University technology fee committee.
Logan has been named to the Ohio University dean's list every quarter and won first place in the electrical engineering/CS3 category at the recent 2009 Ohio University Research and Creativity Fair for her senior design project called "A Healthy WIN: Wellness Integrated Network." Logan is also president of Tau Beta Pi, an engineering honorary; Eta Kappa Nu, an electrical engineering honorary; and Sigma Gamma Epsilon, and earth sciences honorary. She also judged the 4-H Electric 2 Competition at the Ohio State Fair.
