Per Adamson honored with Outstanding Staff Award

Per Adamson, director of the teaching labs at The Institute of Optics, was honored last night at the Hajim School's 2014 Annual Fall Reception with the Outstanding Staff Award. Congratulations!

Per AdamsonHis responsibilites include 17 laboratory rooms and a fully equipped darkroom on Wilmot’s fifth floor. Just keeping them running would be a big job. But Per is no mere custodian. When the Institute hosted its first Photon Camp for high school students, Per worked with others to develop more than 15 separate lab activities to introduce the students to academic and career opportunities in Optics. Whenever a prospective student shows up, Per gladly provides a one-on-one tour. Time and again, Per has gone the extra mile to make the Institute, the Hajim School and our University ever better!
