Please join the College of Engineering in recognizing the achievements of two Utah State University engineering students who were honored at the university’s annual Robins Award Ceremony on April 5.

Kristina Roller

Kristina Roller, who is studying civil and environmental engineering, was awarded Scholar of the Year. The award is given each year to recognize and emphasize excellence in scholarship.

Roller has been a member of the American Society of Engineers, Engineers Without Borders, Tau Beta Pi and an active engineering ambassador throughout her time at USU. She recently worked an internship for engineering company Freese and Nichols this past summer. Roller is passionate about civil engineering and is always eager to volunteer or participate in any way she can.

“I am very honored to be recognized as the Outstanding Senior Scholar for the College of Engineering and as scholar of the year for Utah State as a whole,” said Roller. “I am so grateful for everyone who helped me along the way and got me to where I am today.”

Regan Tracy

Regan Tracy, who is studying mechanical and aerospace engineering, won the achievement of the year award for her dedication to her platform as Miss USU. Tracy dedicated countless hours to representing underrepresented groups in STEM and encouraging them to find a place where they belong.

In addition to being crowned Miss USU in 2023, Tracy has served in the Society of Women Engineers USU chapter and represented numerous organizations including Science Unwrapped and Women in Science and is a current employee at the Space Dynamics Lab. Additionally, Tracy was recognized by the Women inTech Council for her dedication to STEM.

“All I want to do is encourage people to stay in engineering and see their potential for greatness,” said Tracy. “I love where I am and I want others to see just how great engineering is for themselves.”
