Center for Composite Materials - University of Delaware

2017 Student Achievement Day Awards

The UD-CCM Annual Student Achievement Day Awards were presented on May 5, 2017, at the University of Delaware’s Center for Composite Materials.

CCM was honored to have the son of the late Professor R. L. McCullough, one of CCM’s founding fathers, present this year’s R. L. McCullough Scholars Award. Dr. McCullough presented his father’s eponymous award, which recognizes original contributions to the literature on composite materials to Thomas A. Cender, Ph.D. M.E. 

In his opening remarks, Dr. McCullough thanked the Center for inviting him to participate.  “It is a rare and unique privilege for a son to have the opportunity to present an award dedicated to his father’s memory and to his father’s work,” said McCullough.  “Solid research… can truly change our understanding of the world around us… It is only through publication that research can fulfill its educational role for the public, demonstrate its relevance to government and industry, inspire new ideas and perhaps serve as the foundation for future research efforts, and maybe, just maybe, help to make the world a better place.”
