FIFTH ANNUAL LIPSCOMB SCIENCE FAIR AWARD

WON BY GARRETT HERRIN
alt

       Garrett Herrin, an 11th grader at Glynn Academy, became the fifth recipient of the annual Dr. William T. Lipscomb Science Fair Award this past Saturday at award ceremonies at the College of Coastal Georgia.  Herrin’s project, “Particulate Air Pollution", was judged to have best epitomized concern and hope for a clean environment and healthy economy for coastal Georgia.  Herrin is the son of Leslie and Keith Herrin.  His science teacher is Ingrid Brown.

    The award was given by the Glynn Environmental Coalition 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 Coalition Board of Directors, and long-time Coalition member Eileen Hutcheson.  The award was presented by Nancy Mick, Pinova Inc. Environment, Health, and Safety Manager, and Daniel Parshley, Coalition Project Manager.

    The award consisted of a framed certificate, a $1,000 scholarship, a one-year membership in the Coalition, and Herrin’s name engraved on the Lipscomb trophy.  “We appreciate Pinova Inc. joining with the Glynn Environmental Coalition in support of our science students in coastal Georgia and increasing the award to a $1,000 scholarship to further their educational endeavors,” said Frank Lea, Coalition Vice-President.  Both parties are joining in this scholarship as a symbol of the framework of open communications, respect, fairness, and trust that we wish to build in the community. We are both grateful for the opportunity to support science in our community.

Wes Thrift and Zach Gibson, 7thgraders at Brantley County Middle School, received the Dr. William T. Lipscomb Science Fair Honorable Mention Award.  The science project, “Silent Killer”, concerned ammonia levels in the Satilla River. Thrift and Gibson each received a check for $75 and a framed certificate.  Their science teacher is Regena Rowell.

The William T. Lipscomb Award 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.

Garrett Herrin’s project won several other awards at this, the 26th, Coastal Georgia Regional Science and Engineering Fair sponsored by the College of Coastal Georgia.
