“I am honored to have been the 2016 recipient of the Honors Student Scholarship established by Dee Griebel ’76. It’s been a very busy year, with many obligations and responsibilities. In early spring I attended the Posters in St. Paul Undergraduate Research session, where I was able to
showcase my undergraduate research work to Minnesota politicians at the Capitol.
In April I attended the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’s meeting to again present my research. Jill Andel and Gayle Clark of the Honors office have been very helpful to me and as a result I have been able to apply for and receive several SCSU Foundation
scholarships. I am so thankful for the generosity of donors who believe in supporting the work of young students, such as myself. I am humbled and honored.”
