LEA LEE, associate professor of teaching and learning, and JONG CHOOL PARK, assistant professor of accounting, were invited guests of South Korean President Lee Myung-bak at a recent banquet in Washington, D.C. President Lee met with President Obama to celebrate the U.S.-South Korean Free Trade Agreement.

ANDREAS TOLK, professor of engineering management and systems engineering, served as special issue editor for the International Journal of Intelligent Defense Support Systems. Together with Barry Smith from the University of Buffalo, he edited vol. 4, no. 3 on "Command and Control Ontology." Tolk also served as chair of the Military Training and Simulation Asia Conference 2011 that was conducted Sept. 28-29 in Singapore. Speakers provided perspectives from industry, government and academia, focusing on the local constraints of this new market segment that also exposes new academic challenges for M&S research.

X. NANCY XU, professor of chemistry and biochemistry, served as a reviewer on the NIH Special Emphasis Review Panel on Interface of the Life and Physical Sciences, ZRG1 BST-M. She also served as a reviewer on the NSF Review Panel on Biophotonics.

AWARDS/HONORS

CECELIA TUCKER, assistant to the president for community relations, a recognition award from the United Way of South Hampton Roads Minority Advisory Council for her unselfish act of giving back to the community and being a pioneer and valuable member of the council. She also was cited for her service as a board member of the William A. Hunton YMCA, Rotary Club of Hampton Roads, Norfolk Education Foundation, American Red Cross of Southeastern Virginia and the L.D. Britt Scholarship Committee.
