Candice Hampton Ryan Harris

The Robert Maher Memorial Scholarship Award

Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness (CNTA) is pleased to announce that Ms. Candice Hampton, a junior Nuclear Engineer at South Carolina State University, and Mr. Ryan Harris, a junior Mechanical Engineer at Clemson University, are recipients of the 2010 Robert Maher Memorial Scholarship.

Ms. Hampton has distinguished herself academically and in research assignments working with Dr. Musa Danjahi at South Carolina State University on "The Design of a Nuclear Battery." After successfully completing her BS undergraduate curriculum at SCSU in Nuclear Engineering, she wants to further her education at either Georgia Tech or NC State University. She is a member of Alpha Nu Sigma and Golden Key Honor Society.

Mr. Harris has worked 13 months in the nuclear field for Duke Energy at Oconee Nuclear Station in Seneca SC, where he has been involved with interesting projects and training courses. One of the largest projects involved his work with heat loss analysis of the secondary piping in the turbine building. These projects have sparked a desire to learn about and work in the nuclear power industry. Ryan has been on the Dean's List in the fall of 2008 and 2009.

Both recipients were recognized at the annual Edward Teller Lecture/Banquet that was held on November 17th at the Doubletree Hotel in Augusta GA.

CNTA wishes Ms. Hampton and Mr. Cauthen much luck in their future endeavors.
