ACerS is pleased to announce that Ashley Hampton has been selected for Volunteer Spotlight, a program through which we recognize a member who demonstrates outstanding service to The American Ceramic Society through volunteerism.
Hampton received her B.S. in ceramic engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology. She has seven years of experience in ironmaking refractories with roles in both research and technical marketing. She recently joined RHI Magnesita to focus on the research and development of basic refractories for the steel industry.
Hampton first joined ACerS in 2013 after attending the 49th Annual Symposium on Refractories, along with the C08 Section of ASTM. She first volunteered in the Refractory Ceramics Division (RCD) as co-program chair of the 53rd Annual Symposium on Refractories in 2017.
Currently, Hampton is chair of the RCD and a North American Executive Board Member on the Unified International Technical Conference on Refractories (UNITECR) Committee. She recently accepted a nomination to be a new member on the Diversity and Inclusion Sub-Committee and hopes she is able to volunteer in that role as well. Hampton has also previously served as secretary and vice-chair on the Ceramic Education Council (CEC) before it became the Education and Professional Development Council.
We extend our deep appreciation to Hampton for her service to our Society!
