Two Coker students get NSF grants

Dr. Pat Lincoln, provost of Coker College, just announced that two Coker students have received NSF grants for Summer research. That is impressive. Here is a copy of the note Dr. Lincoln sent:

"I would like to congratulate two of our students, Ms. Cynallyhia Indriago and Mr. Bryan Musungu, for being selected to receive summer research fellowships funded by the National Science Foundation.

The NSF fellowships will allow Cynallyhia and Bryan to conduct research at Purdue University on genes important in fungal-plant interactions for 8 weeks this summer. Their research at Purdue is related to and will enhance the research they are conducting here at Coker College in Dr.Flaherty’s lab as part of a NSF-CAREER funded project.

Cynallyhia is a rising junior majoring in biology and a member of the Volleyball Team. Bryan is a rising senior majoring in biology and a member of the Men’s Soccer Team."

Congratulations to two students who are proving what it means to be student-athletes.
