ENGLISH MAJOR DYLAN PLATZ RECEIVES DISTINGUISED SERVICE AWARD: On
2/20/14, at a meeting of the East Tennessee Chapter of the Society for Technical
Communication (STC), English major Dylan Platz received the first-ever
Distinguished Service Award for Students given to any UT student. Dylan, whose
concentration is Technical Communication, is the longest-running STC Student
Liaison in our history, plus the first-ever student vice president of STC-ETC.
STC's distinguished service awards represent "the highest level of recognition
that a member can receive for service to their community." The International
Society, on average, gives this prestigious award to only a few individuals each
—Please congratulate Dylan!
