The Military Operations Research Society (MORS) has named its new Junior Analyst Award in honor of Naval Postgraduate School Professor of Operations Research and former Dean of the Graduate School of Operational and Information Sciences Wayne Hughes. The award is the first given by the society to an outstanding individual new to the profession. “The Prize Committee named the new MORS Junior Analyst Award after Wayne Hughes, because he embodies everything we want our junior analysts to be,” said MORS President retired Navy Lt. Cmdr. Jack Keane, an NPS alumnus (Operations Research, 1993) who oversees 200 engineers and analysts at the Precision Engagement Systems Branch, Global Engagement Department at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. “When we looked at all the candidates to name the new award after – and they all were strong – he stood out. Wayne has been a mentor to 90 percent of the MORS board of directors, a past president, a fellow and a winner of MORS’ highest honor, the Vance R. Wanner Award for significant contributions to national security. Most importantly, he’s constantly trying to instill enthusiasm in all military analysts, up and down the chain of command.” (Released)
