WPI alumni honored in Bangkok

In January, history Professor John Zeugner and chemistry Professor Stephen Weininger presented the Ichabod Washburn Young Alumni Award for Professional Achievement to Chartsiri "Tony" Sophonpanich '80. Sophonpanich, president and CEO of Bangkok Bank, Ltd., Thailand's largest bank, received the award in 1995 but was not able to attend the ceremony. Zeugner directs WPI's Asian programs; Weininger served as faculty advisor to Bangkok projects during Term C '96.

Sophonpanich's wife, Ninthira, and Supawan Tantayanon '82CH (Ph.D.), an associate professor of chemistry at Chulalongkorn University, were on hand for the presentation. The photograph appeared in the Bangkok Post on April 4.
