Richard and Patricia Spriggs Phase Equilibria Award, to honor the authors who made the most valuable contribution to phase stability relationships in ceramicbased systems literature in 2012. The award-winning paper is “Phase Relationships in the Quasi-Ternary LaO1.5–SiO2–MgO System at 1773 K,” Sci. Technol. Adv. Mater., 13, 045006 (2012), by K. Kobayashi and Y. Sakka. Kiyoshi Kobayashi is principal researcher at the National Institute for Materials Science, Tsukuba, Japan. Yoshio Sakka is managing director of the Materials Processing Unit at the National Institute for Materials Science, Tsukuba, and professor at the University of Tsukuba. Corporate Environmental Achievement Award, to recognize and honor an outstanding environmental achievement made by an ACerS corporate member in the field of ceramics. Schott won the Corporate Environmental Achievement Award for its sustainable manufacturing processes for Ceran and Pyran platinum glass-ceramics, which are produced without heavy metals and with water and energy conservation in mind. Kobayashi Sakka Class awards ACerS/NICE: Arthur Frederick Greaves-Walker Lifetime Service Award, to an individual who has rendered outstanding service to the ceramic engineering profession and who, by life and career, has exemplified the aims, ideals, and purpose of the National Institute of Ceramic Engineers. William G. Fahrenholtz is Curators’ Professor of Ceramic Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla. He earned BS and MS degrees in ceramic engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1987 and 1989, respectively, and completed his PhD in chemical engineering at the Fahrenholtz University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, in 1992. He is the author or coauthor of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and holder of four US patents. Fahrenholtz’s research expertise is in processing and characterization of ceramic materials. He is an ACerS Fellow and currently sits on the Society’s Board of Directors. He also has served on the Publications Committee, the Ceramic Education Council, the Education Integration Committee, as an officer of the New Mexico Section, and as an associate editor for JACerS. Ceramic Education Council: Outstanding Educator Award, to recognize truly outstanding work and creativity in teaching, directing student research, or the general educational process of ceramic educators. Linda E. Jones is professor of engineering, vice president and head of the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Her current research focus is the structure–properties relationships of novel forms of carbons and carbides used in energy applications and the hightemperature decomposition behavior of materials, including glass. Jones In 1991, she took an assistant professor position in Alfred’s Department of Ceramic Engineering, rising to full professor and department chair of materials science and engineering. In 2005, Jones joined the faculty of Smith College as the Rosemary Bradford Hewlett ’40 Professor of Engineering and director of the Picker Engineering Program, the nation’s only accredited engineering program at an all-women’s institution. She returned to Alfred to accept her current position in 2010. In addition to her management responsibilities, Jones serves as advisor for all students seeking a double degree that combines ceramic arts and engineering.
