Personal note from Dr. William R. Sigmund, University
Three years ago, Region IX presented me with an original PJAS medallion and a donation to the university to fund an annual award in my name. I am pleased that I will be able to present a $200. award each year to a biology major interested in teaching. At the annual Natural Sciences and Mathematics Honors Banquet, the "William R. Sigmund PJAS Award" has been presented to three deserving students, Rebecca Pike, Susan Vangavree, and Jessie Rack. This year I will be increasing the stipend to $250.
I am extremely grateful to the Region IX Committee for this wonderful recognition. I am especially honored since I know how much work the other committee members put into this meeting each year, as it is truly a group effort, and I accept this award on behalf of all of them. Thank you, Region IX Committee!
