Dear Colleagues:

Please help me congratulate our ECE doctoral candidate, Mr. Ahmed Soliman, for winning first place in the IEEE Region 3 Annual Graduate Student paper competition award. This award is given annually to the best paper presentation by a graduate student author, as judged by a panel of Society members and student papers need to be sole-authored or first-authored. This award includes a plaque. He was selected from among eight finalists that were presented in that competition.

Congratulations Ahmed. Keep up the excellent work.
