Next in our faculty summer series, Professor Dawn Ward enjoyed a huge family reunion in New Jersey that was so special that it was featured on Good Morning America. What makes this such an amazing story is the tenacity with which her family has stayed connected EVERY week throughout the pandemic. Watch the full story by clicking the photo. Dr. Ward can be seen celebrating with her family!

In this second post highlighting faculty summer activities, Professor Michelle Ivey is cruising up the Mississippi from New Orleans to St. Louis via riverboat. The eleven day cruise includes many interesting ports and sights, including Graceland and historic homes and plantations, while hearing from an onboard Civil War Historian. The cruise was a bit of normalcy enjoyed by Dr. Ivey and her family.
While things are getting slowly back to somewhat normal, our faculty are doing some fun and exciting things over the summer break. To start off this series, we are highlighting the efforts of Professor Jeremy Burkett and looking for your help!
Dr. Burkett is practicing concise communication of a scientific topic. The Veritasium Channel on YouTube (#VeritasiumContest) is hosting a contest to see how well someone can explain a complex topic in about a minute. You can watch Dr. Burkett's communication entry here:
If you think he succeeded in concise communication, just your view will help, but LIKING the video will also help get his video in front of the judges. Good luck Dr. Burkett!
Corinna Carter, (Chemistry BS'17/MFS'18) is being featured on our blog as an alum who now teaches at Stevenson, and we are glad she does! Her story: "Since graduating I worked for a clinical toxicology facility that performed LC/MS testing for drug rehabilitation centers. When there I was in charge of accessioning samples, batch preparation, releasing data reports, and chemical inventory (I'm not there anymore). While working full-time at the lab, I started teaching General Chemistry labs as an adjunct and loved every minute! I now teach CHEM 115/116 lecture, lab, and an online Food Chemistry class through SUO. What I like best about teaching at Stevenson is the relationship I'm able to build with my students. It's absolutely amazing to see how an originally timid freshman class opens up and becomes more confident throughout a semester. Being a stepping-stone in their journey is incredibly rewarding!"
Chemistry faculty member Kaitlin Bailey and her husband Joe welcomed a baby boy into their family just in time for Independence Day!
