Justin Ridge found out last week that he is one of six winners, nation wide, for excellence in coastal and marine graduate study. “Justin Ridge, a Ph.D. student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is using innovative techniques to assist in restoration efforts of oyster reef communities. He also co-founded a unique educational program for K-12 teachers, where fellow students and faculty share their research with the teachers, who in turn, bring that information into their classrooms.” Check out information on all of the winners at the NOAA website, and more information on North Carolina winners at NC Sea Grant. We are all very proud of Justin at UNC-IMS! Keep up the good work.
