Kristen Brown, Saving the world with engineering

Organization involvement: Society of Women Engineers

Kristen Brown is among Arizona State University’s 2016 spring graduates to receive the Distinguished Service Award from the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering for her contributions to the university community.

Brown helped to lead a growing and very active student organization — the ASU chapter of the Society of Women Engineers — and served for three years as a community assistant in freshman engineering dormitories, and a year as a peer mentor for freshman in ASU’s Barrett, The Honors College.

Brown, who went to Mountain Pointe High School in the Ahwatukee area of Phoenix, will receive her bachelor’s in chemical engineering. Her academic performance and community service helped her earn the Best Community Assistant/Peer Mentor Partnership Award for the 2013-2014 academic year, the High Honors Endorsement Scholarship from the Arizona Board of Regents, a scholarship from the W.L. Gore company, and the Greater Phoenix Area Engineers Week Engineering Student of the Year Award for 2014-2015.
