L. David Pye, Ph.D., dean emeritus of the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University (AU), is this year’s recipient of the International Commission on Glass Chairman’s Award for “outstanding lifetime professional achievements.” The award will be presented at the opening ceremonies of the International Congress on Glass in Brazil on September 20.

Pye becomes the second member of the AU faculty to receive the lifetime achievement award, which has been presented every three years since it was established in 1994. Recipients are selected for their achievements in one or more of the following areas: scientific discoveries, engineering developments or applications, scholarship, artistic accomplishments, industrial/academic leadership, and communications within the international glass community.

Pye, who graduated from Alfred University in 1959 and earned his master’s and doctorate degrees at AU before joining the faculty of the School of Engineering, was dean of the College of Ceramics during its centennial celebration in 2000 and was founding director of the National Science Foundation Center for Glass Research at Alfred. He was also involved in establishing the Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering and creating the only Ph.D. program in glass science in the U..S. at Alfred.
