Biology Students Win Awards

Contributed by Nancy Pierce on 04/24/2006 

Scott Werneke ('07) is this year's winner of the Outstanding Presentation Award for his presentation entitled, “Metal interactions with slug glue proteins”, at the Eastern College Science Conference. He conducted his research in Andy Smith's lab.

Hugo Valencia ('07) is this year's recipient of the Jason Dickens Memorial Award. This award is given in honor of Jason Dickens, who was an Ithaca College Biology major. Jason hoped to attend medical school and to use his talents to serve society as a physician. Tragically he was the victim of a boating accident in the summer of 1998. Hugo is planning on attending medical school upon graduation. His stipend will be used for textbooks or other academic needs.

In continuing with the standard of excellence established by the Ithaca College Athletic Training Education Program, we are pleased to announce that three of our student majors have won highly competitive state, regional and national scholarship competitions! Please join us in congratulating these fine young ladies!

One of the most influential conservative commentators in the country will give a defense of the war on terror in a talk at Ithaca College. Rich Lowry, editor of "National Review," will speak on Tuesday, April 25, at 8:00 p.m. in Park Hall Auditorium. Titled "The Benign Superpower: In Defense of the President's Bush's War on Terror," his talk is free and open to the public.

While studying English and history at the University of Virginia, Lowry edited a conservative monthly magazine called the "Virginia Advocate." He graduated in 1990 and went on to work as a research assistant for commentator and columnist Charles Krauthammer and as a reporter for a local paper in Northern Virginia. In 1992 he joined "National Review," a magazine founded in 1955 by William F. Buckley that has played a decisive role in shaping the conservative movement in the United States. Lowry served as articles editor before moving to Washington in the summer of 1994 to cover Congress, and in 1997 he was named the magazine's editor.
