Each year, Georgia Tech recognizes a group of faculty and staff members from across campus for their outstanding achievements.
This year, three people from the GT Computing community have been awarded at the annual Faculty and Staff Honors Luncheon held April 11 in the Student Center Ballroom.
- Human Resources Director Pam Ruffin has been selected for the Spirit of Georgia Tech Award. Ruffin earned the inaugural award for inspiring others with “their presence and professionalism and creating an environment where others flourish and thrive.”
- Online Masters of Science in Computer Science Instructor David Joyner has earned the Curriculum Innovation Award. This award recognizes Joyner’s work to improve the “quality of education at Georgia Tech through pedagogical and curricular innovation.”
- Assistant Professor Devi Parikh has been recognized with this year’s Sigma Xi Young Faculty Award. This award “recognizes outstanding research achievements, as evidenced by publications, program development results and other research contributions.”
“Congratulations to Pam, David, and Devi,” said Dean of Computing Zvi Galil. “These awards are very well-deserved and are a testament to their immense talents and dedication to the College community.”
