Chris Malbrue received the College of Engineering Hero Award at the Georgia Tech College of Engineering (CoE) Staff Appreciation event held on July 11 at the Student Center Ballroom. He is an educational support manager in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

The CoE Hero Award specifically recognizes an individual who is a role model and sets a positive work example; who everyone turns to for support or solutions; who demonstrates that no job is too big or too small; who is committed to the delivery of excellent service at all times; and who produces exemplary work.

Malbrue has been with ECE since 2008, where he worked in the Academic Affairs Office, first as an academic assistant and then as an admissions coordinator for the School’s graduate program. He joined the Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) Program more than three years ago as an educational support manager. 

Malbrue’s VIP colleagues said that he came up to speed very quickly on the tasks that were assigned to him. More importantly, Malbrue has enthusiastically taken on increasing levels of responsibility almost every six months and executed brilliantly in each area. His colleagues said that he is one of the primary reasons that the VIP Program has been able to continuously expand in terms of the number of VIP teams, number of faculty advisers, number of students, and number of disciplines involved. When Malbrue joined the program, it had around 300 students, and now, it has more than 900 students.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to VIP and ECE, Chris! We are very proud of you and your achievements.
