NC State College of Education Professor Aaron C. Clark has received the 2017 Distinguished Service Award from the Engineering Design Graphics Division (EDGD) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). The award is the division’s highest honor and was presented to Clark in recognition of his outstanding and distinguished career as an educator and scholar.

In addition, he has authored multiple papers published in the EDG Journal and has attended numerous EDGD and ASEE conferences, including serving as a program chair and session moderator at those conferences.
Of Clark’s contributions to the organization, the EDGD stated on a plaque presented to him during the ASEE Annual Conference in late June: “His tireless efforts and sage wisdom have contributed greatly to the evolution of the division and the camaraderie enjoyed by its members.”
Clark received his bachelor’s and master’s in technology and doctoral degree in technology education. His research and teaching focus on graphics education, animation and scientific/technical evaluations.
