As one of its first duties, the 2021–2022 ANS Board of Directors has appointed three new members. Jessika V. Rojas, John M. Mahoney, and Tracy E. Stover joined four other incoming members on the Board.
Rojas, ANS member since 2015 and an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University, was appointed to replace Kathryn D. Huff and will serve a three-year term. Huff was elected to the Board in April but declined the seat after accepting a leadership position with the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy.
Mahoney, ANS member since 2008 and president and chief operating officer of High Expectations International, was appointed to serve the remainder of Steven Arndt’s term. Arndt was elected ANS vice president/president-elect in April, thus creating the vacancy. Mahoney will serve a two-year term.
Stover, ANS member since 2007 and a criticality safety engineer at Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, was appointed to fill the vacancy created by the death of Peter Lyons in May. Stover will serve a one-year term.
