Valparaiso University’s Kyle Zobeck, a senior mechanical engineering major and mathematics minor from Coralville, Iowa, has been selected as a Tau Beta Pi Laureate, the highest distinction for a senior engineering student in the United States.

“I am greatly honored to receive the Laureate designation,” Zobeck said. “I don’t think the enormity of the situation has fully hit me yet. It is a very exclusive group to be a part of, and I cannot thank my professors, classmates, and fellow Tau Beta Pi members enough for putting me in a position to even be considered for this honor.”

Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society, selects up to five of the “best of the best” students from more than 325 U.S. colleges of engineering. Zobeck has the honor of being in a select group of 83 Laureates chosen since 1982. According to the Tau Beta Pi website, these Laureates are outstanding examples of the “spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.”

“This is the second Laureate that Valpo has had in the last three years,” said Kraig Olejniczak, outgoing dean of the College of Engineering. “I want to express my appreciation and thanks to the Indiana Delta Chapter for choosing a wonderful Laureate candidate. This is the caliber of award that continues to raise the reputation of our College of Engineering and our University.”

Zobeck also plays for the VU men’s soccer team. After graduating this December, he plans to pursue a career in professional athletics.

The award will be presented to Zobeck at Tau Beta Pi’s 2012 convention, which will be held Sept. 27-29 in Lexington, Ky. baclofen rezeptfrei in osterreich estradiol pills online estradiol cream australia generic diovan ranbaxy estradiolo estradiol over 6000 estradiol no prescription needed sale  apotheke gunstig dutasterid online apotheke schweiz atarax rezeptfrei schweiz jan 1, 1970 – where can i generic drug availability, manufacturer information, and patent status on prozac . without prescription in canada; lowest price generic fluoxetine pills for sale over the counter; sales of  bestellen berlin Most people found the cpa-9c to work perfectly, but to the chagrin of some users, boom boxes and some older car stereos use the latter type of connection
