Top Promotions for Six Scientists
On June 14, Fermilab Director Mike Witherell announced the promotion of six Fermilab scientists to the highest job category attainable by scientific personnel at the lab: Arlene Lennox was promoted to Applied Scientist III, and Roger Dixon, Joe Lykken, Paul Mantsch, Jim Strait as well as John Womersley were promoted to Scientist III. Their job promotion citations highlight the "substantial and sustained scientific contributions" these scientists have made to Fermilab, and how they have demonstrated "considerable and unusual leadership ability pertaining to the scientific or technical achievements of the laboratory," two of the criteria used in promotions to level III. Fermilab Today congratulates.

The citations for their promotions are as follows:

Roger DixonRoger Dixon--"for providing essential and special project management to DZero in the 1980's and to CDMS in the 1990's, for his leadership as head of the Research Division and, especially, for his recent leadership as Head of the Accelerator Division during Run II."
Arlene LennoxArlene Lennox--"for her leadership in the development and operation of the Neutron Therapy Facility at Fermilab."
Joe LykkenJoe Lykken--"for his contributions to theoretical physics, in particular for the development of the concept of weak scale superstrings, his impact upon the broad direction of particle physics, and his demonstrated ability to communicate the science to a broader audience."
Paul MantschPaul Mantsch--"for his distinguished leadership in the development of superconducting magnets and components of the Tevatron, his technical leadership in the tagged photon laboratory, and his leadership role in the construction and implementation of the Auger Southern Observatory."
Jim StraitJim Strait--"for his important role in the upgrade of the CDF calorimeter system, leadership as Project Manager of the U.S. LHC Accelerator Project, and for leadership in the creation of the LHC Accelerator Research Program (LARP)."
John WomersleyJohn Womersley--"for his leadership as spokesperson of the D-Zero collider program, as Physics Coordinator of US CMS, and for his effectiveness as a leading communicator in the field of elementary particle physics."
