In a ceremony held in October, the Council of Energy Resource Tribes (CERT) presented this year’s American Indian Spirit Award to Laboratory Executive Officer Ron Cochran and the Laboratory for their “continued dedication and commitment to Native American education and leadership.” The award was presented by Chairman Alvin Windy Boy of the Chippewa Cree Tribe.
CERT is an organization that promotes tribal energy efforts and increased educational opportunities for American Indian youth. Said Cochran, “This award is a very special honor, and I accepted it on behalf of the Laboratory, UC, and DOE. The Laboratory’s American Indian Program has worked hard to partner with the Indian communities through CERT.”

Laboratory physicist Kennedy Reed, a researcher in the Physics and Advanced Technologies Directorate, is the 2003 recipient of the American Physical Society’s John Wheatley Award. This award is given to a physicist who has made an outstanding contribution to physics research and education in a developing country. It is given every two years and includes a prize of $2,000 and a certificate citing the recipient’s contributions.
Reed is cited for “multifaceted contributions to the promotion of physics research and education in Africa, for developing agreements for exchange of faculty and students between U.S.A. and African institutions, for organizing and conducting international workshops and conferences on physics in Africa, and for advocating increased U.S.A. and international involvement with physics in Africa.”
