Savannah River ANS Local Section Receives Two Honors
Members to be presented with awards at 2013 Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C.
The American Nuclear Society (ANS) awarded the ANS Savannah River Local Section with both the 2013 Large Local Section Best Meetings and Programs award as well as the Best Large Section Public Information award.
Savannah River boasts over 300 members and during the 2013 year invested over 10,000 hours in public education. During the last year members invested time developing high school workshops for classroom presentations, provided both scientists and engineers to Career Day events across South Carolina, and hosted monthly technical lectures for the public.
ANS President Donald R. Hoffman will present the Savannah River Local Section with their awards at the 2013 ANS Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C. during the President’s Special Session.
ANS Local Sections provide an opportunity for ANS members to be engaged with the organization and public at the local level. Local Sections are able to deliver their residents news and information on how nuclear has enhanced our quality of life in their communities.
