MIHS Best Student Award

The Michigan Industrial Hygiene Society has been recognizing the academic achievements of IH students from local Michigan universities since since 1984. The MIHS Best Student Award was created by the MIHS President at that time, Mr. Sarunas Mingela, Ph.D., CIH. In 2004 the MIHS Board of Directors decided to limit the Best Student Awards to educational programs accredited by ABET in industrial hygiene. Each year, usually in February, MIHS hosts Student Night, a dinner with an awards ceremony, which honors each school’s Best Student. Their achievements are announced by a professor from their respective school, and then MIHS President presents them with with a plaque and a gift. Congratulations to the following MIHS Best Students!
