Nine CAFNR Students Awarded S.T.A.R Recognition

Over the course of the spring semester, these nine students participated in at least five workshops offered by the Office of Undergraduate Research. In recognition of their efforts to prepare themselves professionally to engage in the process of research and scholarship, they were awarded the S.T.A.R. recognition.

The following students received the recognition:

  • Huda Ansaf, Biochemistry
  • Jake Engelbrecht, Biochemistry
  • Allison Harris, Biochemistry
  • Lydia Jefferson, Environmental Science
  • Aleea Magras, Biochemistry
