Two Giants Leaving Nuclear Energy Institute
April 2007 was a bad month for the nuclear industry because they lost Thelma Wiggins, left, and Chandler Van Orman, right. These two titans were instrucmental in helping to bring about the current rennaissance in the nuclear industry. AAEA had great relationships with these two individuals and we doubt they will be easily replaced. Thanks Thelma and Chandler for your comradarie.
Thelma is off to pursue her passion of Christian counseling and will be relocating to Columbia, SC after 20 years of service in the industry. Chandler recently participated in the Nuclear Power Roundtable at The State of Environmental Justice in America 2007 Conference at the Howard University School of Law. Chandler has retired, but don't think he will not be influential in whatever he wants to do next. We will miss both of you.
