Alumni Day Honors Jackson *86 and Baliban GS5

This Saturday, February 25, both a CBE alumna and a current CBE graduate student will be recognized by the University at Alumni Day with two of its top honors.  Lisa P. Jackson, Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will receive the Madison Medal, presented each year to an alumnus or alumna of the Graduate School who has had a distinguished career, advanced the cause of graduate education or achieved an outstanding record of public service.  Jackson received her M.S.E. in Chemical Engineering in 1986, working with the late Professor Ernest Johnson.  In addition, current CBE Ph.D. student Richard Baliban, who is working with Professor Christodoulos Floudas, will be honored as a Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellow at Alumni Day.  The Jacobus Fellowship is Princeton's top honor for graduate students, awarded to those whose work has exhibited the highest scholarly excellence.
