Honors for S. Jane Fritz

Congratulations to S. Jane Fritz, C.S.J., who has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Athanasios Papoulis Award, presented by the Long Island Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.

The award is presented annually to an educator in engineering, science or mathematics — residing or teaching within the boundaries of the Long Island Section of the IEEE — who has demonstrated innovative teaching techniques. Athanasios Papoulis, a professor at  the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn (now Polytechnic Institute of New York University) from 1952 until his death in 2002, was committed to promoting quality technical education on Long Island.

A longtime member of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science on St. Joseph’s Long Island Campus, S. Jane was elevated to the grade of senior member of the IEEE in 2011. This elite rank is the highest professional grade for which an IEEE member may apply. Only 8 percent of the organization’s 400,000 members have achieved this distinction.

S. Jane will receive her award at the IEEE Long Island Section Awards Banquet in Woodbury on March 20.
