 Allison M. Brashear, a 10th grader at Glynn Academy, became the fourth recipient of the annual Dr. William T. Lipscomb Science Fair Award this past Saturday at award ceremonies at the College of Coastal Georgia.  Ms. Brashear's project, "How Does Ground Cover Impact Water Runoff and Recharge Rates?", was judged to have best epitomized concern and hope for a clean environment and healthy economy for coastal Georgia.  Brashear is the daughter of Harold and Jennifer Brashear of Brunswick.  Her science teacher is Ingrid Brown.

    The award was given by the Glynn Environmental Coalition (GEC) in memory of its former Secretary, Dr. William T. Lipscomb, who taught life sciences at Coastal Georgia Community College for 18 years.   This year's judges for the Lipscomb Award were Dr. Eugene Keferl, also a retired CGCC science teacher, Barbara Bowdry of the GEC Board of Directors, and long-time GEC member Eileen Hutcheson.  The award was presented by GEC President Bill Owens.

    The award consisted of a framed certificate, a $150 check, a one-year membership in the GEC, and Ms. Brashear's name engraved on the Lipscomb trophy, which is kept on display at the GEC offices at 4472-C New Jesup Highway.  "We welcome the public to come by, see the award, and browse our resource center," says GEC Organizational Development Coordinator Robert Randall.

    Ms. Brashear's project won several other awards at this, the 25th Coastal Georgia Regional Science and Engineering Fair sponsored by the College of Coastal Georgia.
