Congleton to participate in Gatton Academy study abroad trip

Students from The Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky are beginning summer learning at WKU, around the Commonwealth, and around the globe. From research internships to study abroad to robust community service projects, students are gearing up for busy weeks ahead. 

In addition to notable research internships through the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), The Gatton Academy also continues with its ninth summer of the Gatton Research Internship Grant and its second year with the WKU Sisterhood Research Internship Grant. Through these latter two programs, 21 rising Gatton Academy seniors will conduct summer research. This summer also features travel and study abroad opportunities for 55 Gatton Academy students. Summer travel destinations include China, England, Estonia, Jordan, Moldova, France, Italy, the Seychelles, Spain, and South Korea.

“Our students’ passion to explore and drive for meaningful activity never ceases to amaze me. While our building is closed, they are off researching, studying abroad, working, and volunteering,” said Lynette Breedlove, director of The Gatton Academy. “For Gatton students, summer brings a shift but not necessarily a change in pace as they continue their efforts to impact their communities and as they prepare to impact our state and our world.”

Hannah Congleton (’19) of Bedford will be participating in a study abroad course in England through a partnership between Gatton and Harlaxton College in Grantham, England. The course will study Honors: Introduction to Literature with Professor Walker Rutledge of the WKU Department of English.

Berea College names dean’s list students

BEREA – More than 365 Berea College students were names to the spring 2018 dean’s list. A student is named to the Dean’s List who achieves a GPA of 3.4 or higher while passing at least four total credits, a course load equivalent to 16 semester hours.

Students making the dean’s list include Guillermo Cruz of Carrollton, Cathryn Fischer of Campbellsburg, Erin Gonterman of Campbellsburg and Katherine Gonterman of Campbellsburg.

Berea, the first interracial and coeducational college in the South, focuses on learning, labor and service. Supported by Berea’s No-Tuition Promise, Berea College admits only academically promising students with limited economic resources, primarily from Appalachia. All students must work 10 hours or more weekly, earning money for books, room and board. The College’s motto “God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth,” speaks to its inclusive character, and the quality of its programs ensures that graduates from Berea go on to distinguish themselves and the College in many fields.
