Undergraduate history paper wins top national honors council prize

Matthew Kruer, a junior majoring in history, received the Portz Prize from the National Collegiate Honors Council at its annual meeting. The Portz Prize is awarded to three honors students in a national competition. Kruer's paper, "A Country Wonderfully Prepared for Their Entertainment: The Aftermath of the New England Indian Epidemic of 1616," was read at the NCHC conference in Salt Lake City, where Kruer received the Portz Prize.

"This paper exemplifies the multi-talented students in Honors," said Dean Patricia MacCorquodale of the Honors College. "The paper is a brilliant, interdisciplinary synthesis of history, economics, psychology, sociology and political science woven together with a critical perspective."

Kruer is the second UA student to win the Portz Prize. Mark Rivera, a philosophy major, received the prize in 1999.

Trade organization grants award to UA semiconductor researcher

Professor Farhang Shadman will receive the Akira Inoue Award on Dec. 4 during a reception at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, Japan.

Shadman, of UA's Chemical and Environmental Engineering department, directs the NSF/SRC Engineering Research Center for Environmentally Benign Semiconductor Manufacturing. The Center is administered by UA and includes researchers from UA, MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Arizona State University, Cornell, University of Maryland and MIT's Lincoln Lab.

Shadman will receive the award in recognition of his many contributions to the field of environmentally benign semiconductor manufacturing.

SEMI is a trade organization representing more than 2,400 member companies, and serves industries worldwide that specialize in semiconductor equipment, materials and flat panel displays.

SEMI established the Akira Inoue Award to recognize individuals in industry and academia who have made significant contributions to the semiconductor industry and society in the areas of environment, health and safety (EHS). It honors those who influence the semiconductor industry's EHS performance and who develop innovations in processes, products or materials that improve the industry's EHS record.

The award honors the late Akira Inoue, past president and representative director of Tokyo Electron Limited and a former SEMI board member. Inoue championed environmental protection and employee health and safety. He advocated environmental responsibility and believed it must be part of the semiconductor industry.

KUAT, KUAZ welcome John Kelley as new manager on campus

Public radio stations KUAT-FM 90.5 and 89.7 and KUAZ 89.1 FM/1550 AM welcome a new radio station manager this month. John Kelley has joined KUAT Communications Group as assistant general manager for radio.

Kelley arrives from Baltimore, where he served for eight years as assistant general manager for classical music station WBJC-FM, the largest public radio station in Maryland, with a weekly audience of 160,000. Previous stints in radio include serving as operations director at WDAV-FM, a classical music and NPR affiliate in Charlotte, and as a producer for WBJC. Most recently, Kelley was a site development consultant with Nextel Communications in Columbia, Md. He has also worked as a planner for Howard County, Md., and as a professional photographer. Kelley has a bachelor's degree in art history and has done graduate work in art history and urban planning. Kelley also is a "movie buff," an avid bicyclist and a fan of classical music, jazz and the visual arts.

"KUAT-FM and KUAZ are valuable resources in the community and I am delighted to be a part of Tucson's public radio family," said Kelley. "I look forward to increasing services to the community and strengthening the position of the stations in the market. Just as there is tremendous population growth in the community right now, there is also great potential for increasing our listening audience."

KUAT-FM and KUAZ are located on the UA campus. The stations are part of the KUAT Communications Group, an educational broadcast and production resource of the UA. For more information, contact 621-5828 or visit the Web site at http://www.kuatfm.org.
