Moreland Herrin Scholarship
The Moreland Herrin Scholarship was established by Professor Herrin’s family, former students and colleagues in honor of his outstanding career. Professor Herrin is recognized as one of the nation’s experts in asphalt and hot-mix asphalt paving materials. While on the faculty, he served as the organizer and chairman of the Illinois Bituminous Conference, directed the Illinois Cooperative Highway and Transportation Research Program, and served as assistant materials engineer on the well-known AASHO Test Road. Professor Herrin’s most influential role during his thirty years in the Department was as advisor to generations of students, many of who are now successful practicing engineers.
A committee of transportation faculty selects the award recipient, and preference is given to nontraditional students.
The award is given during the Spring semester.
