Abigail Sullivan wins the Edith Patch Award!

April 14, 2013

Abigail Sullivan, Tim Waring’s graduate student has been selected as the recipient of the master’s level award for this year’s Edith Patch Award!  This award is given each year to graduate and undergraduate women in acknowledgement of distinguished work that they have done while at the University of Maine and in recognition of their promise for future contribution to the fields of science, agriculture, engineering, or environmental education.  The awardees receive a small honorarium, and are invited to deliver a brief presentation about their work at the Annual Earth Day Reception in honor of Dr. Edith Marion Patch.  This year’s reception will be held on Sunday, April 21, 2013 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Thomas Lynch University Club, on the second floor of Fogler Library.

The Award was created in 2006 by the Friends of Dr. Edith Marion Patch. It is given annually in order to honor Dr. Patch’s legacy, as exemplified by the work of today’s graduate and undergraduate women in science at the University of Maine. Dr. Patch was the first woman scientist employed by the University.

Abie has also pulled down offers from 3 prestigious PhD programs, including Michigan, Yale and ASU.  We will be sorry to see her go!
