Comments from Constanza Hwang regarding being awarded the LA Section Scholarship and being a part of NACE International -

"I got an internship at JPL thanks to my research background in corrosion/electrochemical studies with Dr. Ravi at Cal Poly - Pomona.  I’m in the Electrochemical Technologies department helping research batteries for powering space applications.  It’s fun work and summer is going by fast for me too since I’ve been working full-time.  I know you're no longer the chair but I'd like to thank you and the other LA section members once again for your support; our corrosion project—and in turn my internship—wouldn’t have been possible without your help."
