The International District Energy Association (IDEA) recently announced the 2012 John Gray Scholarship Award recipient, Ryerson Lehman-Borer of Pennington, New Jersey. The award was bestowed during IDEA’s 103rd Annual Conference & Trade Show held in late June in Chicago.
The scholarship program’s objective is to recognize interest in the growth and success of district energy and combined heat and power (CHP) technologies and help the industry attract and retain these individuals. As a John Gray Scholar, Lehman-Borer received a monetary award and complimentary registration to the annual conference and trade show.
Ryerson Lehman-Borer graduated in June from Hopewell Valley Central High School in Pennington, N.J. While at Hopewell, he was a four-year varsity cross country runner and captain of the team in his senior year, leader of a student-run a cappella group, and starred in the school musical. He also participated in Peer Leaders and National Honor Society. As a sophomore, Lehman-Borer was part of a team that won the state-level “Conquer the Hill” physics competition. His father, Ted Borer, manages Princeton University's award-winning energy plant and has been actively involved in IDEA for the past 18 years. Lehman-Borer will begin his freshman year at Swarthmore College this September, where he intends to pursue studies in engineering.#2012 #IDEAAward #JohnGrayScholarship
