The National Society of Black Engineers saluted Karl Reid, executive director of Special Programs for the School of Engineering, on Thursday, March 24, naming him the Minority Engineering Programs Director of the Year during its convention at Boston's Hynes Convention Center.

The 13 winners of the society's Golden Torch Awards represented the technical professions, corporate leadership, government and academia, or university and pre-college arenas.

"It is our way to salute and honor our awardees, not only for their personal achievements and dedication to the field of engineering, but also for acting as standard bearers for those who will walk in their shoes," said Carl Mack, the society's new executive director.
