At age 11, while in 7th grade, Kenneth Andrew Kienlen had a writing assignment for English class. He went to the library at the University of North Texas to do his own independent research. The following report is the result. His grandfather, Don Riley, was a pioneer in development of fast breeder reactors. So he may have had a little inspiration before going to the library. He did a superlative report in 7th grade. We wish government leaders would go to a library and make an attempt to learn about the importance of safe, reliable, affordable energy for the world for centuries to come, not just promote the latest trends. Kenneth went on to graduate from Texas A&M in nuclear engineering. We wish him the best in the future. Go Nuclear.

During the summer between high school and college, Peyton Williams responded to an invitation to learn a little about the benefits of peaceful uses of nuclear energy. His task was to study the book by Charles Till and Yoon Change from Argonne National Laboratory titled, "PLENTIFUL ENERGY - The Story of the Integral Fast Reactor. The complex history of a simple reactor technology, with emphasis on its scientific basis for non-specialists." He did a superlative report and we wish him the best in college and the future. Go Nuclear.

John Landis had a very distinguished career in the development of peaceful use of nuclear energy. In his later years, he dedicated a lot of time to promoting public education about nuclear energy, uses of radioisotopes and understanding low dose radiation.
