Since 1998, ASHRAE presents an annual scholarship in the name of Mr. Adams. We have been notified this year's scholarship was awarded to Rachel Kendall. She is an undergraduate mechanical engineering student at the University of Manitoba (Canada). A certificate was presented to Rachel by the Manitoba Chapter at a meeting on March 16th.
Recipients are chosen based on studies at a 4-year institution, character, accomplishments, and likelihood of success in the HVAC and/or refrigeration industry. The last three recipients have included Smart Maduka (University of Lagos), Jonathan Hankenhof (University of Cincinnati), and Mahmoud Mohammed (University of Illinois).
Mr. Adams was a charter member and sixth president of ASHVE, a predecessor society of ASHRAE, way back in 1899.
