March JOM Shares the Stories behind New Award Opportunities
TMS awards named after those who have helped shape the profession extend these individual legacies by recognizing achievements that embody their principles and build upon their work. Beginning with the 2018 awards cycle, TMS will honor three more esteemed members with awards named and conferred to celebrate their professional contributions and personal influence. Read the March JOM: The Magazine article for details on the new Oleg D. Sherby Award and the Julia and Johannes Weertman Educator Award (formerly the TMS Educator Award), authored by those who knew these individuals as mentors, colleagues and friends, and worked diligently to establish these awards in their honor. That same issue shares the reflections of the next generation of TMS leaders in an article introducing this year’s TMS Young Leaders Professional Development Award Recipients. Additional March issue highlights include a review of key milestones for TMS over the past year by 2016 TMS President Stanley M. Howard, and a case study on waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE) submitted by the Institute for Process Metallurgy and Metal Recycling in Germany.

Another highlight of this issue is an overview of the recipients of the many 2017 TMS awards to be conferred at the TMS 2017 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in San Diego in March. And, make sure to get acquainted with Julie Schoenung, the newest member of the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy Editorial team.
