The Hajim Distinguished Alumnus Award recipient this year is Robert Ter Tsu Huang ’70 (MS) ’76 (MA) of electrical engineering, the founder of SYNNEX Corp. Robert is generously supporting efforts to promote the University of Rochester, and connect its alumni, parents, and friends nationwide, through the Huang Series in Technology and Innovation program. The series included a great zoom session recently on Ranga Dias’ groundbreaking work on superconducting materials, with good attendance and lots of questions. And a panel discussion in March on the applications data of science is another good example. The series is a wonderful way to encourage support and engagement from our University community. Robert distinguished himself as SYNNEX president and co-CEO for nearly 30 years, then worked closely with the company to create a lasting legacy of scholarships for college students. We are deeply grateful for his generosity.
