Congratulations to Alyssa Koch for receiving a Milton E. Mohr Fellowship from the UNL College of Engineering. Milton E. Mohr (1915-2000) was described in his lifetime as ", inventor, entrepreneur, corporate leader" and was instrumental in providing key leadership to young adults. As an electrical engineer, corporate executive and philanthropist, Milton Mohr believed that becoming an entrepreneur and corporate leader requires a knowledge and experience base, and that one does not leap "...suddenly to corporate success." He was named America's Most Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer in 1948. The Milton E. Mohr Scholarship and Fellowship Awards Program was established in 1989 for students in the College of Engineering or Biotechnology degree programs. Students are selected on their academic performance and potential for accomplishments in their specific field. The scholarships and fellowships are made possible through an endowment to the University Foundation.
