She received the award April 12 at the organization’s annual banquet. In presenting the honor, Professor Susan Burns noted Gadsby’s involvement across Tech’s campus, from professional societies to the jazz ensemble and her work mentoring high school girls and other underclassmen.
The award honors a female engineering student who has excelled in the classroom, demonstrated leadership, and excelled in service to the field. It’s named for the first female tenured engineering professor at Georgia Tech.
Just a few weeks ago, Sigma Xi recognized Gadsby for her undergraduate research on pavement rehabilitation, work that has the potential to save state transportation departments millions of dollars.
Meanwhile, 18 other School of Civil and Environmental Engineering students won scholarships at the banquet.
