Aerospace engineering's Emily Wolf honored with Achieving Women Award

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Emily Wolf, an aerospace engineering senior, was named the undergraduate student recipient of the 2013 Commission for Women (CFW) Achieving Women Award on April 26.

Wolf and six others were honored at a University-wide luncheon hosted by the CFW and the vice provost for educational equity at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel.

The CFW Achieving Women Award recognizes Penn State women who have demonstrated notable leadership and accomplishments in their fields, have championed the University's diversity efforts and have engaged in significant public service. The award is given to an individual in each of seven categories: undergraduate student, graduate student, staff exempt, staff nonexempt, technical service, faculty and administrator.

Throughout her tenure as an aerospace engineering student, Wolf exemplified leadership and service to the College of Engineering and Department of Aerospace Engineering.

Through her involvement with Women in Engineering Program outreach, Wolf has had a positive impact on hundreds of pre-college girls over four years, helping them consider engineering careers.

One of her nominators said, "Emily has tirelessly demonstrated extraordinary leadership, dynamic public service and dedicated citizenship in her selfless pursuit to attract and retain women in non-traditional STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) professions."
