Penn State Wilkes-Barre Assistant Teaching Professor of Engineering Jeffrey Chiampi has been nominated for the Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce’s STEAM Professional of the Year award.
The honor is part of the sixth annual Young Professional Awards from the Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce, with media partner Times Leader Media Group and presented by Coal Creative.
Every year, young professionals in northeastern Pennsylvania are nominated in 10 award categories. The top three finalists in each category are recognized at a special awards ceremony, where the category winners are announced and awarded. This year’s event will be an outdoor ceremony at the Garden Drive-in in Hunlock Creek. Nominees must be between the ages of 25 and 40 and live in northeastern Pennsylvania.
The STEAM Professional of the Year award is sponsored by PPL Electric Utilities and overseen by the Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber’s Young Professionals Council, which plans and assists young professionals of Greater Wyoming Valley as they improve their careers, develop their leadership abilities, build their professional networks and give back to the community. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
