Horner Presented CoE Senior Award

Computer Science major Nathaniel Horner is the winner of the College of Engineering 2005 Senior Award for excellence in the humanities. The award was announced at the Engineers’ Council annual spring banquet on April 28.

Nathaniel is pursuing a double major in Computer Science and English, as well as minors in Cognitive Science and Art & Design. He is a Benjamin Franklin Dual Degree Scholar, Caldwell Scholar, and CHASS Outstanding Scholar. Nathaniel is also in the University Scholars and Honors programs. He received the Richard L Porter Award and the Gregory Poole Scholarship and is editor of Americana, NC State’s online student magazine.

In a December commencement address presented in the NC State English Department, Nathaniel quoted Thomas Friedman, author of The Lexus and the Olive Tree, “…the traditional boundaries between politics, culture, technology, finance, national security and ecology are disappearing. You often cannot explain one without referring to the others….” That is one of Nathaniel’s guiding philosophies.

The College of Engineering’s Senior Awards are college-wide awards given to seniors for outstanding performance beyond academic achievement. Each department within Engineering nominates four seniors; one each for Scholarly Achievement, Citizenship and Service, Humanities, and Leadership. From all the seniors nominated within Engineering, only four awards are given.
