Biology and Environmental Science News

Date: Sep 22, 2014

The annual lecture held in memory of Department Chair and Professor of Mathematics, Susan Palmer Slattery, was held last Thursday, September 18, 2014. Dr. Slattery was an inspiration to both students and faculty and will always be remembered by the Stevenson Community.

This year’s lecture featured Arlene G. Weiner, an Environmental Engineer for the Baltimore District of the US Army Corps of Engineers. Ms. Weiner utilized her 30 years of experience as an environmental professional to speak on building a career in Applied Mathematics. Following the lecture, Applied Mathematics major Anna Foote was named the 2014 Slattery Scholar. She was presented the award by Ms. Thea Zimmerman, Dr. Susan Slattery’s sister. Congratulations to Anna and warm wishes to the Slattery family!

Kendel Quirk, a freshman Biology major, moved back to the United States to attend Stevenson University after living for 10 years in Budapest, Hungary. She knew she wanted to attend a University that was similar to her high school, the Greater Grace International School, where each class has no more than 16 students and all of the teachers really cared about individual students.

After hearing about Stevenson University from family and friends, she knew that she would be comfortable here. Once she visited campus, she realized this was the school she wanted to attend.  Kendel has enjoyed growing up in an international environment and will never forget the people she has met and the friends she has made. Welcome to the Stevenson family Kendel!

“Attending an international school since the third grade and being one of the few Americans in the school has definitely affected me. Not only have I made best friends who are from all around the world, but I also was able to learn about different cultures and their perspectives on many different things. Even spending the night at a friend's house taught me something new about a culture different than my own. This is something that I will always be grateful for, and although it was difficult to be away from home at times, I wouldn't change anything from these past ten years. I now consider Budapest as my home.” – Kendel Quirk
