More than 100 people recently gathered at an annual awards luncheon to honor the exceptional work and commitment of more than a dozen individuals associated with the College of Science and Liberal Arts at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).
“Here at NJIT we think such ceremonies are serious business,” said Fadi Deek, PhD, dean of the college. “It’s a good way to let special individuals know their worth and to teach others that good deeds do get noticed.” Students, faculty and staff from throughout New Jersey stepped up to the podium to receive the honors. They included the following individuals.
Alumni awards were presented to Jaime Mosquera, of Kearny, who graduated in 1998 with a degree in actuarial science. Mosquera joined New York Life Insurance Company’s actuarial program and became a Fellow in the Society of Actuaries in March 2005. Mosquera’s career plans now include volunteer work in the Hispanic community coupled with an involvement in NJIT’s actuarial program.
Daniel Bubb, PhD, of Beltsville, MD, also received an award. Bubb was one of the very first doctoral graduates of the department of physics at NJIT. He has taught at Seton Hall University. His research funding has reached almost $1 million.
