ES alum wins Duke teaching award

Hi, ES folks –

How about a shout-out to ES alumna Wendy Dow Piniak, who won the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching at Duke University!

                After graduating from Gettysburg, Wendy went to Duke Marine Laboratory for her master’s degree and is almost finished with her PhD on sea turtles.  She teaches some awesome courses!  Not that I’m biased or anything – Wendy and I are co-authors on two mussel papers based on work she did here as an undergraduate.

                Congrats, Wen! – John
