The Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the A. James Clark School of Engineering extend their congratulations to seniors Karam Hijji and Ashley Lidie, who were selected to serve as Senior Marshals at the spring 2010 University of Maryland Commencement ceremony on Thursday, May 20.

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, hosted by University of Maryland President Dr. C. Dan Mote.
