Chapter Officers Present West Point Academic Awards

In May, the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point held its annual academic awards ceremony. Aaron Hampton, chapter president, presented the AFCEA Brig. Gen. Boyd Wheeler Bartlett, USA, Honor Award to Cadet Taylor Schorlemmer, with Dan Braun, vice president, Pocono Mountains Chapter, and West Point Class graduate of 1973, in attendance. Cadet Schorlemmer was the West Point Class of 2022 top graduate in the Electrical Engineering Program. He graduated in May and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army's Cyber Corps before going to graduate school at Purdue University on a fellowship.

Additional attendees included Harry Van Trees, who graduated number one in his West Point Class of 1952 and who received one of AFCEA's first academic awards that year for excellence in electrical engineering. Van Trees is the highly regarded author of a three-volume series of textbooks on signal detection, estimation and modulation theory. He served as the chief scientist of the U.S. Air Force, the principal deputy assistant secretary of defense (C3I) and assistant secretary of defense for Networks and Information Integration. He also is an educator of the highest esteem at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and George Mason University. Van Trees was an instructor in the AFCEA Professional Development Center for more than 19 years and was at West Point to participate in the 70th reunion of his West Point Class.
