Lifetime achievement award for emeritus professor Larry Erickson
Larry Erickson, Kansas State University emeritus professor of chemical engineering, will be presented with the Climate and Energy Project 2018 Impact Award at the organization's annual celebration and awards ceremony Monday, Dec. 10 in Lawrence.
