AWARDS

W.A. Tarr Award

The W. A. Tarr Award was first announced in March, 1949 and has been the annual award of the Society of Sigma Gamma Epsilon since that time.  W. A. Tarr was the Grand Editor of The Compass from May 1920 when the first issue was printed until the time of his death in 1939.  It was largely through his efforts that The Compass became a success.

The W.A Tarr Award is awarded annually to an outstanding member of the chapter every spring at the Earth Science Spring Banquet.
