Spring 2011 GTA Excellence Award

Congratulations to Lissa Ong and Devin Schrader, recipients of the PTYS/LPL Spring 2011 Graduate Teaching Assistant Excellence Award. Lissa and Devin were nominated for this award based on their work with Elisabetta Pierazzo's PTYS 214 (Astrobiology) course. Thanks to their dedication and hard work, the undergraduate students had a positive classroom experience despite the tragic loss of Betty. Lissa and Devin will each receive a trip to the domestic science meeting of their choosing.
