The George T. Hanyo Award was established in 1996 by the Kurt J. Lesker Company in the memory of George T. Hanyo, a highly skilled, long-time employee of the company. The award is presented to recognize outstanding performance in technical support of research or development in areas of interest to AVS. The award consists of a cash award and a plaque setting forth the reasons for the award.
The winner of the 2016 Hanyo Award is Stanley B. Christman of Hickory Hill Designs, “for outstanding technical support on a variety of projects at Bell Labs.” He will receive this award during the Awards Ceremony at the AVS Symposium and Exhibition in Nashville in early November. Our sincere congratulations go out to Mr. Christman.
