The Clark School's chapter of Tau Beta Pi (TBP), the nation's engineering student honor society, received the R.C. Matthews Award for Most Outstanding Chapter for 2005-06, beating out more than 300 chapters across the country for the honor.

According to the national TBP website, the award encourages and recognizes high-grade work by the chapters in both routine and special affairs. The award is based on how well chapter service projects fulfill the objectives of TBP and on the quality and promptness of chapter reports to the national headquarters.

Last year, the Clark School chapter sent students to the Gulf states over winter and spring breaks to help those who were affected by Hurricane Katrina.

The Clark School's chapter has won the award 11 times, most recently in 2001.
