Woody Award Recipients

 Materials Research Society Foundation LogoPrior to the establishment of the MRS Woody White Service Award in December 2015, the MRS President presented a Woody Award to a volunteer that the president selected “in recognition of outstanding service and dedication on behalf of MRS as exemplified by Woody White, MRS President, 1984.” 

In 2015, the Board voted to replace the prior Woody Award with the MRS Woody White Service Award.
