20th Annual Student Leadership Awards

On Friday April 18th at the 20th Annual Student Leadership Awards, Abhilash Kantamneni (Computer Science, Ph.D. Student) won an award for Exceptional Community Service Project. The honor came from his leadership in bringing together community stakeholders to participate in the Georgetown University Energy Prize, a competition to award $5 million dollars for communities to innovate in energy efficiency.

Abhi would like everyone to know that he could not have done this without the support of his advisor, Dr. Laura Brown.
