Emily Griffith, North Carolina Chapter president, presents the Senior Statistician Award to Alyson Wilson and Steve Marron during a dinner on December 6, 2019.

The North Carolina Chapter held its annual fall dinner on December 6, 2019. More than 60 statisticians from the NC ASA community gathered to celebrate the year’s theme: Statistics: Past and Future.

David A. Dickey of North Carolina State University took attendees on a walk down memory lane in his talk, “The Way We Were,” while Sudipta Dasmohapatra of Duke University looked to the future in her talk, “The Role of Statistics and Statisticians in the Data Science Buzz World.” The talks were a mix of humor and insight.

In addition, the North Carolina Chapter presented its annual awards. Steve Marron of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Alyson Wilson of North Carolina State University each won the Senior Statistician Award for their outstanding contributions to the theory and practice of statistics, particularly for their role in developing the subject in North Carolina. Fang Chen of SAS won the Service Award for his longstanding support of the North Carolina Chapter.
