Martin serves as the assistant dean within the School of Engineering and Computer Science; he is also the coordinator and director of the School of Engineering and Computer Science’s Co-op program. Martin has been representing the orange and black since 1983.
Ray, an assistant professor of communication at Pacific, is the final recipient of the Faculty Mentor Award. Ray joined the faculty in 1987. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Memphis State University, as well as a doctorate from the University of Missouri.
