The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) has recognized William Angell (Housing Studies; Midwest Universities Radon Consortium) with its 2009 Excellence in Extension Award for the North Central Region. The award, for Angell's work in radon mitigation will be presented at the association's annual meeting on Sunday, November 15, 2009 in Washington, DC.
"On behalf of Extension, the department and the colleges, I am grateful for the support I have been given to translate research in the field to reducing the loss of life due to elevated radon in buildings," Angell said in response to an e-mail query. "This award is as much a recognition of the support extended to me as it is to the opportunity I have been given. I am totally committed to the challenge of design, construction, and maintenance of healthy buildings; a commitment shared many in this department and college and in Extension."
