The Kettering chapter of the Institute of Industrial Engineers hosted a "Throw a pie at a professor" event Friday, Sept. 20. For a mere dollar students could take out pre-final frustrations on faculty volunteers. Faculty valiantly took it on the chin, in the eye, and sometimes in the ear.
A total of 11 faculty members volunteered for the gooey duty:
David Poock (IMEB)
Terri Lynch-Caris (IMEB)
Brent Lewis (SM)
Karen Cayo (IMEB)
Boyan Dimitrov (SM)
Ken Morrison (IMEB)
Matthew Sanders (IMEB)
Ada Cheng (SM)
Laura Sullivan (ME)
Daniel Russel (SM)
Dan Ludwigsen (SM)
"We were fortunate that many faculty and staff members made generous donations in the spirit of fun," said Ryan Martter, IIE member. "It was an event for students and faculty to have fun at the end of the summer term. We didn't expect to make a fortune doing it." Martter said. The money raised will be used toward the IIE chapter general operating fund, which provides food at meetings and helps in planning events like tours of plants and trips such as conferences, conventions, and seminars.
IIE is a national professional organization for the industrial engineering profession and is based out of Norcross, Georgia. Information on the national organization can be found at www.iienet.org. There are approximately 20 active student members in the Kettering IIE chapter.
