Dr. Sally G. Steadman, an instructor in the College of Engineering at the University of South Alabama, will be named 2005 National Outstanding Advisor by engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi at its 100th annual national convention to be held Oct. 6-8 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This prestigious honor recognizes engineering faculty who make important contributions to students and collegiate chapters. In recognition of her mentoring abilities and talent for inspiring students to create and maintain effective chapters, Steadman will receive a stipend and a commemorative plaque, and a $1,000 grant will be presented to USA’s College of Engineering.

A faculty advisor for 15 years, 13 at the University of Wyoming and two at USA, Steadman was cited by students and peers at both institutions for her devotion to leadership, personal integrity and tireless work to encourage excellence.
