Sponsored by IEEE

Evelyn H. Hirt

Edward C. Stone

For steadfast service and leadership
dedicated to the IEEE mission and members
across all corporate, geographic, technical,
and educational levels

For decades of exceptional scientific and
engineering achievements that have profoundly impacted the world's progress in
space exploration

Recognizing the value of being in a community that fosters involvement in diverse technical interests, Evelyn H. Hirt's dedication to
IEEE has led to volunteerism at all levels, including local Sections,
several IEEE Societies and Technical Councils, IEEE Eta Kappa Nu
(HKN), most major boards, and two terms on the Board of Directors. With professional experiences bridging the industrial, government, academic, and nonprofit communities, Hirt's career has focused on the expert delivery of technology-based solutions to meet
customer needs, including creating and executing corporate strategies for existing and new markets. Hirt joined IEEE as a student
member in 1973, and in her subsequent 48 years of membership has
impacted IEEE broadly and deeply across organizational units, volunteers, and membership. Her areas of involvement include corporate and organizational unit management; technical activities including conferences, publications, and standards; mentoring and career
enhancement for the practicing engineer; issues involving women,
minorities, and the disabled in engineering; assisting preuniversity
students in understanding and preparing for engineering as a career;
and mentoring engineering students. She has been earnestly involved
in various activities within IEEE and HKN ranging from a wide variety of local, regional, national, global, and corporate-level leadership
positions. These IEEE volunteer opportunities include the Honorary Membership Committee (2021), IEEE-HKN President (2015),
IEEE-USA President (2010), Region 6 Director (2003-2004), Editor-in-Chief IEEE Aerospace and Electronics Systems Magazine (2004-
2008), Nanotechnology Council Founding Secretary (2002-2003),
and Section Chair (Richland, 2006 and Albuquerque, 1985/1986).
She was an invited speaker on the value of mentorship at events for
IEEE Young Professionals (2017) and IEEE Women in Engineering (2016).These volunteer contributions have sought to ensure that
IEEE functions to serve the members, technical communities, and in
fulfilling its mission to advance technology for humanity.
An IEEE Life Senior Member and recipient of the 2011 IEEE
MGA William W. Middleton Distinguished Service Award, Hirt is
currently a project manager with Battelle Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and adjunct professor with the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Washington State University, TriCities, Richland,WA, USA.

A giant in space science and science administration for over six
decades, Edward C. Stone has provided invaluable leadership
in space physics, groundbreaking space exploration missions,
and the development of powerful telescopes for observatories.
Stone has been involved in space research since starting out as a
young investigator on earth reconnaissance and geophysical missions in the 1960s. Stone joined Caltech in 1964 and in 1972
was appointed project scientist for NASA's Voyager Mission.
Voyager was an ambitious project to send two spacecraft with
11 instruments each to fly by Jupiter and Saturn. In this role
he coordinated the efforts of over 100 scientists on 11 different
teams.Throughout the over 40 years of Voyager's flight, Stone has
presented the mission's discoveries that have revolutionized our
concepts of the solar system with lucid and straightforward explanations of everything from the volcanoes on Io to the nature
of the edge of the heliosphere, the giant bubble of solar plasma
that envelopes the planets. Both Voyager spacecraft continue to
operate today. In 2012 Voyager 1 became the first human-made
object to cross into interstellar space beyond the heliosphere, and
Voyager 2 achieved the same milestone in 2018. Stone served as
director of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) from 1991
to 2001, where he oversaw missions including the first successful
landing of a rover on Mars, opening a new era of Mars exploration. Stone's management of JPL during the Cassini mission to
Saturn made the successful international collaboration of NASA
and the European and Italian space agencies possible. Stone also
served on the board of directors of the California Association for
Research in Astronomy, which has been responsible for building and operating the W.M. Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea,
Hawaii. He currently serves as executive director of the TMT
International Observatory, which is responsible for developing
the Thirty Meter Telescope.
A member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, Stone
is the David Morrisroe Professor of Physics and the vice provost
for special projects at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA.

Scope: For outstanding volunteer service to the IEEE.

Scope: For those who have rendered meritorious service to humanity in the IEEE's designated fields of interest and who are not
members of the IEEE.
