In his congratulatory letter to APSU SPS Chapter Adviser Dr. Spencer Buckner, Gary White, director of the SPS for the American Institute of Physics, writes, “This award is a testament to your personal leadership skills as much as it is an acknowledgment of your chapter's superior performance.”

The chapter was honored for activities conducted in such areas as physics research, public science outreach, physics tutoring programs, hosting and representation at physics meetings and providing social interaction for chapter members.
