Bronze Beaver Awards

MITAA honors longtime volunteer leaders

Bronze Beavers are given for decades of service to MIT in areas including club and class organization, fund-raising, educational counseling, and governance. This year there were two winners.

He has worked with the Council for the Arts, School of Science, MIT Energy Initiative, and MIT Investment Management Company and has taken on leadership roles in his class and for the MIT Club of New York.

Marjorie M. T. Yang ‘74 has become the cornerstone of the emerging MIT Greater China Initiative. Yang has been a member of the MIT Corporation and visiting committees in mathematics and architecture. Earlier, she served as an advisor to MIT’s initiatives in Singapore and as regional chair of the Educational Council in Hong Kong.
