WARRENDALE, PA-Arnold and Stephanie Siegel have been named winners of the first-ever SAE Foundation Gordon Millar Award.

The award, which is funded by AVL, is given in special recognition of an individual or organization that best demonstrates continuous philanthropic support of the SAE Foundation Mission to encourage and increase student participation and achievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Arne and Steffi share a passion for education and believe that it is a key to an individual's success. Arne's association with SAE International spans his 50-year career in transportation safety, accident and injury analysis and the biomechanics of injury. Since 1994, Arne has served as a Trustee of the SAE Foundation and has dedicated himself to the expansion of the A World In Motion program. Steffi, an accomplished psychotherapist and distinguished author, shares Arne's commitment to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and the SAE Foundation.

An SAE Fellow and a member of SAE International since 1949, Gordon Millar was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1975 and, in 1984 served as SAE president, the same year that he concluded a career at John Deere. Throughout his career with SAE International, he has made several contributions to strengthen the organization, including championing the recognition of SAE International as a participating body with curriculum responsibility for several automotive engineering programs. Additionally, Millar served as a consultant to the Southwest Research Institute in the mid-90s and was an Advisory Trustee from 1993 through 2005. He has also written numerous technical articles, as well as more than 80 articles on the history, design and restoration of antique and classic marine engines, an area in which he has become a recognized expert.
