Outstanding Staff Award — Ryan Schow, supervisor, Nuclear Engineering Program

No one better understands the operations of the University of Utah’s TRIGA nuclear reactor than Ryan Schow. As the reactor supervisor, Ryan is a prime example of the nuclear engineering program’s top-notch staff, always training personnel and maintaining the facility with an eye toward safety and security. Working with UNEP Director Tatjana Jevremovich, Ryan helped develop new and improved ways of maintaining and operating the reactor that mirrors the rigorous operations of industry nuclear power plants. Meanwhile, he has demonstrated a continuous commitment to the growth of the program. As the students of the Utah Nuclear Engineering Program wrote: “It would be fitting to honor Ryan for his outstanding work and dedication in improving both UNEP and the College of Engineering and in setting a high standard for us to follow.”
