Five Students Recognized by the Whiting School of Engineering for Outstanding Achievements

May 14, 2020

Congratulations to the following Department of Civil and Systems Engineering students who were recognized in the Whiting School of Engineering’s 2020 convocation program.


American Society of Civil Engineers Maryland Section Scholarship
The ASCE Maryland Section Scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate member of Johns Hopkins’ student chapter in recognition of outstanding academic merit and achievement in civil engineering.

Recipient: Naomi Meiselman


Civil Engineering Achievement Award
The Civil Engineering Achievement Award recognizes outstanding academic achievement by graduating seniors in the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering.

Recipient: Zachary Epstein


Civil Engineering Faculty Recognition Award
The Department of Civil and Systems Engineering faculty recognize that some students excel in the classroom while also actively participating in leadership and service opportunities in the broader community. We are proud to have this student represent the department.

Recipient: Isabel Siordia


Robert H. Scanlan Award

Robert H. Scanlan was a tireless researcher who made scholarly contributions to both theory and practice in the fields of engineering mechanics, aerodynamics, and the aeroelasticity of civil engineering structures. Dr. Scanlan worked in both the private and public sectors, abroad and in the U.S., as well as in academia. In 1984, at age 70, after a full career at Princeton, he joined the Johns Hopkins faculty. He remained an active faculty member here, aiding the Department of Civil Engineering and its faculty, staff, and students, until his passing in 2001. Dr. Scanlan brought an indefatigable spirit to his work and made indelible contributions to wind engineering and to the study of bridge aerodynamics—topics that are critical to structural engineering practice. This award is presented to a student who demonstrates an interest in making connections between engineering research and practice.

Recipient: Awoenam Mauna-Woanya


Gerard H. Schlimm Award
The Gerard H. Schlimm Award is given to an undergraduate student for exceptional accomplishments in the field of civil engineering. As a longtime senior lecturer and director of the part-time and special programs at the Whiting School from 1966 to 1994, the late Dr. Schlimm made many contributions to the education of future engineers.

Recipient: Daniela Perez-Roldan
