I met Ed when he offered to volunteer for a few hours to help us set up for a weekend-long high tech event for students. A few hours of volunteering turned into an entire weekend and then many more follow-up events. This exemplifies the essence of Ed; he has been generous with his time helping students, most especially by peaking their interest in STEM. He seems to have a natural talent for asking the right questions to help students think about the challenge at hand, propose possible options, and then select the best options. It has been and will continue to be a pleasure and honor to work with Ed.
