On Sept. 18, NPS alumnus Air Force Maj. Christopher McClernon accepted the prestigious Alphonse Chapanis Best Student Paper Award at the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) Conference in San Francisco. He was one of three finalists selected to present to the panel of judges at the annual event, and was announced the winner in front of more than 1,000 attendees. In an exciting mix of coincidence and fate, McClernon was also given an opportunity to meet the keynote speaker for the conference, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, a man whose career McClernon had followed closely in his dissertation research.
