Dean Elnashai awards Dr. Curtis the The Lawrence J. Perez Memorial Student Advocate Award, which recognizes a College of Engineering faculty member who contributes to the welfare of students and enriches the College by his or her willingness to devote significant time and effort to assist students with academic and/or personal problems.
