August 5, 2011 | UCAR/NCAR colleagues past and present will gather at the Mesa Lab on Wednesday, August 10, to celebrate the new NCAR Awards Wall of Honor on display in the Damon Room. The gathering will also provide the opportunity to name the organization’s first Distinguished Scholar.
“The Awards Wall of Honor recognizes the accomplishments that span more than 50 years of outstanding science at NCAR,” says NCAR director Roger Wakimoto. “This celebratory event is for everyone. It’s about more than the individual accomplishments—it's also about the network of support behind the science that makes these achievements possible.”
In addition to celebrating the completion of the Awards Wall, NCAR’s first Distinguished Scholar will be announced. The appointment recognizes exceptional national and international scientific contributions and leadership.
All staff are invited to the celebration, which takes place at 4:30 p.m. in the Mesa Lab main conference room with drinks and light appetizers.
