The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) and the A. James Clark School of Engineering extend their congratulations to senior Hilary Lane, who has been selected as one of the Senior Marshals for the December 2009 Commencement ceremony.

The Senior Marshal program, founded in 1991, recognizes graduating seniors who have demonstrated the highest levels of scholarship, service to the campus community, extracurricular involvement, and personal growth. They are nominated campus-wide by faculty, administrators and staff and selected through an application process. Senior Marshals help facilitate and guide Commencement's student processional, and are recognized at the ceremony. Marshals also attend a luncheon held in their honor.

In addition to her studies, Lane is a member of Unbound, the University of Maryland's competitive dance team, and a Resident Assistant. She has also served as the treasurer of the undergraduate Materials Science and Engineering Society (MatES), and has been active in outreach activities for MSE.
