Peterson Viola L. Acoff Ray D. Peterson, Director, Technology, Real Alloy and Viola L. Acoff, associate dean for undergraduate and graduate programs, The University of Alabama College of Engineering, were officially installed as the newest members of the TMS Foundation’s Board of Trustees at the TMS 2017 Annual Meeting & Exhibition. The 2009 TMS President, Peterson noted that he is pleased to be part of the “new energy within the Foundation” and is looking forward to helping it achieve its goals. “For many years, the Foundation had been operating at a low level, but recently the amount of energy being put into the Foundation and the results produced have skyrocketed,” he said. “I want to see the Foundation succeed, because I believe in the Foundation’ s goals of helping students and young professionals.” “Until recently, many TMS members were not aware of the Foundation. There still may be some members who are not aware of what we are trying to accomplish,” Peterson continued. “I want to help get the word out to our members so that each of them can contribute in whatever way they can.” “We have all personally benefitted from our professional life and our affiliation with TMS,” Peterson further commented. “I believe it is critical that we help our younger members just as we were helped earlier in our careers. The Foundation gives us a method to easily support our younger members through the programs it sponsors. Acoff notes that she can speak from experience about the value of supporting the TMS Foundation’s programs that support early career professionals. “The TMS Foundation has played a significant role in my development since the start of my career,” she said. “Nearly 20 years ago, I was selected as one of the TMS Young Leaders Interns (now Young Leaders Professional Development Award.). This gave me the opportunity to learn more about the inner workings of TMS and the opportunities the TMS Foundation provides for students and professionals in the minerals, metals, and materials field. Since that time, I have seen my students receive various TMS scholarships, travel grants, and awards for best poster and best paper, all of which were made possible by the TMS Foundation.” “I also that think it is awesome that the TMS Foundation supports awards that recognize TMS members who play a vital role in increasing diversity and inclusion in the minerals, metals, and materials field,” commented Acoff, who is the inaugural Ellen Swallow Richards Diversity Award recipient. “Serving on the TMS Foundation Board of Trustees is a way for me to pay forward the benefits I received from the TMS Foundation.” “I am looking forward to introducing others to the wonderful opportunities that are provided by the TMS Foundation so that they will be compelled, just as I was, to give to it.” 2016 Annual Donors Andrea Holland Joins the Foundation Team William P.
