Eggleton receives Outreach & Service Award for outstanding volunteer work in schools and at UW
Eggleton, a third-year doctoral student in chemical engineering and a CEI Graduate Fellow, won the Outreach & Service Award for outstanding and sustained volunteer work in a variety of arenas. As a Clean Energy Ambassador, she has organized impactful outreach events for K-12 students. Eggleton also serves on the UW Graduate and Professional Student Senate, the University Transportation Committee, and as Outreach Chair for the UW Electrochemical Society Student Chapter.
