Black Students in Aerospace wins 2023 MLK Spirit Award

Contributions to campus and community earn BSA this honor

The U-M Aerospace department is excited to announce that the Black Students in Aerospace student organization is the recipient of a 2023 MLK Spirit Award. These awards are given to North Campus programs in the categories of faculty, staff, student, and student organization in recognition of how their contributions to the community embody the vision and mission of Martin Luther King, Jr. 

“This nomination means a tremendous amount to BSA. As a newer organization, it is not always clear which path to take when brainstorming event ideas that will be impactful and engaging for the community. To receive this nomination really shows us that our efforts have not gone unnoticed, and we hope to continue to do meaningful work that the College of Engineering is supportive of,” comments Erin Levesque, co-founder and current President of Black Students in Aerospace.

Anthony M. Waas, Richard A. Auhll Department Chair and Felix Pawlowski Collegiate Professor, Aerospace Engineering, further recognizes the meaningful work BSA does in the community: “BSA has made an impact since day one. This dedicated group of students sets a new bar in our department for passion, engagement and service. I am proud to know them.”
