Cheyenne Cazaubon, ISyE student, received The Jane Chumley Ammons Scholarship at the 2015 Women in Engineering Banquet. The scholarship was established by the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) alumni, faculty, staff, and friends to honor the service, research, education, and leadership of Dr. Jane Chumley Ammons, former ISyE School Chair.
Cheyenne’s concentration at ISyE is quality and statistics and she is completing her third co-op rotation with GE Energy Management as a Consultant Co-op for Energy Consulting in New York. Recently, she was presented another scholarship, the Kurt Salmon Associates Scholarship, for her academic merit and contribution to ISyE. During Cheyenne’s time at Georgia Tech, she became very involved and held a number of leadership positions. Currently, she is part of the Women in Engineering Mentor and Mentee Program, Alpha Phi, Briaerean Honor Society, Society of Women Engineers, and the General Electric Women’s Network.
Cheyenne has a long list of previously held positions on campus. She was part of the Leading Edge Program, an undergraduate leadership development program, a student ambassador for Women in Engineering, elections chair for the Vice President of Administration, Engineering Awareness Chair for the Society of Women Engineers, All-Star Program Chair for the Presidents' Council Governing Board, served on the Freshman Leadership Initiative, and Dinner Jackets co-facilitator of the Student Alumni Association.
In her free time, Cheyenne enjoys running 5K races, painting, writing poetry, and volunteering for opportunities to spread engineering awareness to young girls. This summer, she plans on studying abroad in Asia with the Beijing-Singapore Summer Program. She is excited to experience a culture and language that she’s never been exposed to before. Not a stranger to study abroad, after her freshmen year, Cheyenne did a cultural exchange program in Bogota, Colombia as a Youth Media Ambassador for Motivos, a bilingual magazine. She found this to be a great experience with her years of studying the Spanish culture and language.
Dr. Ammons is a pioneer of engineering for women, a supporter of enhancing educational opportunities for underrepresented minorities, and a leader in the overall field of industrial and systems engineering. Her tenure at Georgia Tech has been marked by many firsts and many successes. She was the first female ISyE Ph.D. recipient (1982) and the first female ISyE faculty member. She previously served as associate dean for faculty affairs in the College of Engineering, and in 2011, was appointed to hold the H. Milton Stewart and Carolyn J. Stewart School Chair in ISyE, becoming the first female school chair in the College of Engineering.
