ChemE Undergrad Cailyn Hall Receives PennACE JoAnne Day Student of the Year Award


Cailyn Hall, a recent graduate of the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering, received the Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Employers (PennACE) JoAnne Day Student of the Year Award for the STEM category. 

PennACE recognizes the achievements and contributions made by undergraduate students enrolled at member institutions who have completed an internship or co-op assignment. Hall completed four co-op work rotations with Sherwin-Williams/Valspar during her time at Pitt. She worked directly with engineers on over 10 capital projects that directly impacted the company and drew from her interests in Chemical Engineering and Supply Chain Management.

After graduating with her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and a certificate in supply chain management, Hall began her full-time job as a Process Engineer at McCormick and Company’s Flavor Manufacturing Center outside of Baltimore, Md.

Each recipient of the JoAnne Day Student of the Year Award receives a check for $500 and a plaque. Students must submit an essay about their experience and resume. Additionally, the application was supported by a support statement from the intern site supervisor and university faculty or staff.

The Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Employers is a collaborative organization of career development and recruitment professionals that provides professional growth and networking opportunities designed to enhance career development practices for Pennsylvania college and university students and graduates.
