PEOPLE IN THE NEWS

Zuwena Green

Zuwena Green of Hephzibah recently participated in the Spring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Research Conference at Georgia State University, sponsored by the Center for STEM Education Initiatives and the Undergraduate STEM Research Society (USRS).

Green is majoring in biological science.

On March 31, students from Georgia State’s STEM departments presented nearly 150 posters at the spring conference, a 50 percent increase from the fall. Topics of student posters included physics, cell biology, chemistry, ecology and sustainability.

The STEM Research Conference is designed to provide an informal opportunity for STEM students gain initial exposure to the research process, to develop confidence in scientific communication, to network and to receive constructive feedback from the university community.

Chase Sherrod

Chase Sherrod of Midville was recently initiated into the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society. Sherrod was initiated at Armstrong State University.

Sherrod is among approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation only and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.
