The Los Angeles Alumni Chapter of IEEE-HKN is pleased to announce the winner of the Alton B. Zerby and Carl T Koerner Outstanding Electrical or Computer Engineering Student Award for 2023: Joseph Asfouri, Theta Rho Chapter! Joseph will receive his award at The ECEDHA Annual Conference, March 2024 in Tucson, Arizona.

About winning the award, Joseph says, “The Outstanding Student Award is a great honor for me personally, but I’m even prouder of the recognition it gives my alma mater Rice. I simply took advantage of the generous opportunities and collaborative environment cultivated by Rice’s faculty, staff, and students — particularly those in the ECE Department. It was my professors and mentors at Rice who inspired and facilitated my achievements in academics, neuroengineering research, and service to K-12 FIRST Robotics teams over my four years there. These achievements were truly a team effort, and the Award goes to this team as much as it goes to me. Thank you to the selection committee and the Los Angeles Area alumni Chapter for this recognition!”

Since their Chapter member was selected, the Theta Rho Chapter will receive a US$500 check from the LA Alumni Chapter.
