Andy Ward Recognized for Supporting Minority Students through Mentoring

January 2006
Congratulations to ETD's Andy Ward for receiving the Office of Fossil Energy Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship Mentor Award. He was recognized for his loyal and dedicated service beyond the call of duty while serving as a mentor to college minority students focused in geology. As a mentor, Andy established personal relationships with five interns over the summers of 2004 and 2005. He helped them develop long-term management skills, provided opportunities for students to interact with scientists from various backgrounds, and maintained regular interaction and consistent support. "Working with students with such diverse backgrounds and from disciplines other than my own provided a unique opportunity for me to hone the important skill of mentoring," said Ward.
