honors: KU seniors receive Fulbright grants Two Kansas University seniors have received Fulbright grants for the 2001-2002 school year. Sean Gordon and Nikki Horne will receive the awards, which cover round-trip travel, health insurance and living expenses for a year of study overseas. Both will graduate from KU later this month. Gordon, a genetics major from Overland Park, will study in a new international molecular biology program sponsored by the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry and the Georg-August University in Goettingen, Germany. Horne, a psychology major from Lenexa, will use her grant to conduct neuropsychological research at the Centre de Neuropsychologie et du Langage in Paris. Her research focuses on treatment and rehabilitation for patients with multiple sclerosis. The grants are named in honor of J. William Fulbright, a former U.S. senator from Arkansas. engineering school: Associate professor named associate engineering dean Associate professor Robert Sorem has been named associate dean of the Kansas University School of Engineering. Sorem has taught mechanical engineering at KU since 1994. He received his bachelor’s degree from KU in 1986, his master’s in 1988 and his doctorate in 1991. He will replace Tom Mulinazzi, who announced in December that he would step down to teach more civil engineering classes. Sorem plans to work alongside Mulinazzi for several months to learn more about the job. Sorem will officially take over the position sometime this summer. The associate dean oversees students’ academic standing, undergraduate recruitment and the admission of freshmen, transfer students and graduate students to the school. Fund-raiser: Restaurant’s omelet day to benefit epilepsy alliance First Watch will serve free omelets from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday to raise money for the Alliance for Epilepsy Research. Patrons are encouraged to donate the cost of the omelet to the alliance to help find better treatments and ultimately a cure for epilepsy. The restaurant is at 2540 Iowa. Awards: Haskell names its student of the year Haskell Indian Nations University student Toni Tsatoke has been named a recipient of the eighth annual Student of the Year scholarships. To win the award, students must have at least a 3.0 grade-point average and be active in the community. The $1,000 scholarship covers half a year’s tuition at a tribal college. Tsatoke is working toward an associate of arts degree in education and has been involved in organizations such as Miss AIHEC, cheerleading and serving as a Miss Indian USA court member. She is also a former Miss Haskell and reports for the Indian Leader. Scholarships were awarded to tribal college students from 31 tribal colleges in a ceremony at the American Indian Higher Education Consortium’s spring conference. honors: KU seniors receive Fulbright grants Two Kansas University seniors have received Fulbright grants for the 2001-2002 school year.
