|Title:||Class of 1994|
Mary Jane Hall-Stimson, you excelled in two sports during your WPI years, shining as a member of the swimming team and as a rower for the crew team. But it was a swimmer that you truly made your mark on WPI athletics. From 1977 to 1980 you were a mixture at the New Englands and AIAW Small College Swimming and Diving Chamionships. Your performance in the 1979 AIAW nationals in Reno, Nv., earned you the designation All-American in the backstroke. You still hold two WPI records: in the 50-yard backstroke and in the 100-yard backstroke.
A civil engineering major, you took full advantage of the opportunities inherent in the WPI Plan to gain exposure to your profession and to the realities of the global marketplace. As a junior, you spent seven weeks at the Washington, D.C., Project Center completing your IQP. In the fall of 1980, you traveled to England to take part in an academic exchange. You were elected to the Tau Beta Pi honor society and served on the Undergraduate Professional Society.
After earning your WPI degree in 1981, you embarked on a successful career as a civil engineer with several firms in California. Your current post is as a senior engineer with Carlile Associates in Santa Rosa.
Mart Jane Hall-Stimson, it is with great pleasure and pride that we honor you as one of the newest members of the WPI Athletic Hall of Fame.
