Dr. Marsha Penner had been awarded the Undergraduate Research Mentor Award for her outstanding work with her undergraduate students, Meilin Richards and Jenna Shrewsbury, by Janice DeCosmo, the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs.
Every year, students who are presenting their work at the Undergraduate Research Symposium are invited to nominate their mentor for special recognition. A committee then selects a few awardees from among those nominees to honor at the symposium. Dr. Penner has been selected as the postdoctoral researcher to be honored this year with an Undergraduate Research Mentor Award. Congratulations!
