sponsored by DigiKey Electronics and presented by
Texas Instruments; a breakfast keynote sponsored by
Lockheed Martin and the keynote at the annual awards
banquet given by 2020 IEEE President-Elect Susan

THE BRIDGE

More than numbers, HKN is about the people
who have taken the pledge to live out the tenets
of Scholarship, Character and Attitude that are the
underpinnings of the society. HKN is fortunate to
count among its ranks pioneers and giants of the
industry, whose work has had worldwide impact.
In 2019, three members who were inducted as
students were elevated to Eminent Member, HKN's
highest membership rank. They are: Dr. Henry
Samueli, founder of Broadcom and pioneer of Wi-Fi
and Bluetooth technology; Dr. G. David Forney, who
developed the first "modern" high-speed telephone
line modem; and Robert Metcalfe, inventor of
the Ethernet.

Members of the Kappa Lambda Chapter don their HKN honor cords
and stoles at graduation.

It is with the utmost gratitude that the Board of
Governors thanks all our members, volunteers,
department heads, faculty advisors, donors and staff
for their unwavering support of IEEE-HKN. Let us move
forward together into a future filled with promise
and success.
