Sendoff of Team Sunergy, Appalachian’s solar vehicle team
Wednesday, July 20, 2016
Outside Summit Hall, on the campus of Appalachian State University
Remarks by Sheri N. Everts, Chancellor
It brings me great pride to recognize the dedicated advisors and students on Team Sunergy and to wish them well as they represent Appalachian at the Formula Sun Grand Prix in Pennsylvania. It is with a bit of extra pride I share our team is the only team from North Carolina and one of only two teams in the South. This team’s work on the solar vehicle Apperion* represents the bold, confident, and pioneering attitude that so perfectly represents our campus and its vision to build a brighter future.
Congratulations on your great accomplishments so far and I join with the campus community in wishing you continued success in Pennsylvania and in qualifying for the American Solar Challenge.
Thank each of you for representing Appalachian so spectacularly and for your dedication to a more sustainable planet.
