The 2006 scholarship recipients include:

  • Dinh Quang Lam, Singapore Polytechnic, Singapore, a native of Vietnam who will graduate from Singapore Polytechnic in 2006 with degree in electrical and computer control engineering. His educational background includes the use of fieldbus technology in pilot plant applications. He is seeking a career in the instrumentation and control industry and plans to attend a university in Singapore to obtain an electrical engineering degree.

  • Gias Ahmed, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), Calgary, Alberta, Canada is enrolled in the Industrial Instrumentation Technology program at SAIT. He has over 13 years experience working in Bangladesh's natural gas transmission, distribution, and utility industries. He has been involved with computerized natural gas metering systems, and is skilled in the installation, commissioning, and maintenance of gas regulating and metering equipment. Gias hopes to expand his knowledge of industrial instrumentation technology by attending SAIT.

  • Shawn Loonam, Lee College, Baytown, TX is president of his college's ISA Student Section. Shawn has demonstrated a strong interest in instrumentation and control technology. He is studying for an associate degree in Applied Science and believes fieldbus technology is becoming the preferred means of communications in the instrumentation field. In addition to his academic pursuits, Shawn serves as vice president of public relations and a senator for Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society for two-year colleges. The organization develops leadership in its members and provides service to the community.
