Prof receives high honour
Dr. Jeremy Hall recently received the highest honour that the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Newfoundland and Labrador (PEG) bestows on its members.
At its recent annual conference, PEG announced the recipients of awards for excellence in engineering and geoscience. The Award of Merit, presented to Dr. Hall, is given for valued contributions to the professions and the community.
“Our awards recognize outstanding contributions by professional engineers and professional geoscientists to the professions of engineering and geoscience, and to the community in general,” said President Douglas Goodridge. “This year’s awardees are excellent examples of very talented and dedicated individuals who have made a difference.”
Dr. Hall has made significant contributions provincially, nationally and internationally to understanding the geosciences and, in particular, to the study of the Earth’s interior.
Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science alum Keith Wellon received the Community Service Award for outstanding contributions to the community. Mr. Wellon is national customer service manager, Superior Propane, and for almost 40 years has given countless hours to his community.
PEG is a self-regulating professional organization that exists so that there is competent and ethical practice of engineering and geoscience in Newfoundland and Labrador, and ensures public confidence in the professions. It receives its authority from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador through the Engineers and Geoscientists Act.
