Biology and Environmental Science News
In April, Dr. Mark Norris helped lead and present a 3 week series on Environmental Stewardship at the Reisterstown United Methodist Church. The weekly topics included: our relationship with nature, our impact on the environment (including climate change), and environmental justice. This was done in preparation for and recognition of Earth Day.
On April 25, Biotechnology major Ashley Babyak and biology faculty member Dr. Matt Tucker presented their research at the World Malaria Day Conference at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Dr. Tucker reported that there was a lot of interest in their research, particularly because it was conducted by undergraduate students.
Dr. Kimberly Tucker, Director of the Center for Environmental Stewardship (CES), received recognition as the Student Employee supervisor of the year. Currently Dr. Tucker oversees 2 employees. Diamond works as the CES assistant and Kate works as a biology research assistant. Plenty of positions will open up next fall in CES and in biology research, so be on the lookout to work with an award winning boss!
This is Dr. Tucker’s second major award since coming to Stevenson in 2013. She won Advisor of the year for Environmental Club in 2014. Congrats on an awesome achievement!
Madison Socks (BIOTECH ’16 ; F. SCI ‘17) has earned recognition as being Student Employee of the Year for Stevenson University. Beyond that, Madison was selected as Maryland Student Employee of the Year by the Northeast Association of Student Employment Administrators. Her employment advisors, Laura Guida and Sarah Brush (pictured above), nominated Madison for her hard work and dedication to the job. As a Laboratory Assistant, Madison helps organize laboratory equipment, prepare classes, and monitors the proper disposal of hazardous waste. Congrats to Madison and all of the other wonderful student employees of the School of the Sciences.
