Faculty from technician education programs in the OP-TEC Photonics College Network nominated former students who were recognized for their technical achievements and leadership abilities. These candidates are asked to complete a questionnaire and submit a resume, Sixteen photonics graduates were selected for the 2009 class of PACT, five more were added in 2011, thirteen more in 2013, and recently, twenty-four graduates have been added to PACT. Their bios featured in both PACT books have been created to show the diversity, accomplishments and beneficial lives they enjoy
