Defensive lineman Eddie Guen-Murray '15 just graduated this past spring, and it looks like he'll be staying in Grinnell for one more year. Eddie has been appointed the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Post-Bac Fellowship Position here at Grinnell. The Fellowship is a great way for Eddie to continue his education and improve his options in his career field, while giving back to the current students at Grinnell. Here's what Eddie had to say:
For the next academic year I will be occupying the HHMI Post-Baccalaureate Fellow position for the Science Learning Center (SLC) of Grinnell College. My job will primarily be composed of two main responsibilities: to oversee the 2nd year science retreat and to act as a full time mentor in the SLC. The goal of the 2nd year science retreat is to aid students in their transition into higher level science courses and inform them on how to pursue a future in science. As a mentor in the SLC, I will work to further assist student success by providing an ever-present mentor for Organic Chemistry I/II. Two courses generally regarded as some of the more difficult that students have to take as science majors.
Thanks for the update Eddie. It will be different to see you at Rosenbloom Field on Saturdays in your street clothes, but we're glad you'll be here in town! Good luck!
