ULM's Stringer receives highest award given by the Louisiana Science Teachers Association
Dr. Gary Stringer, head of the University of Louisiana at Monroe Atmospheric Science, Earth Science and Physics Department, recently received the Claudia Fowler Distinguished Service to Science Education Award, the highest award given by the Louisiana Science Teachers Association.
Stringer was honored with the prestigious recognition at the Regional Convention of the National Science Teachers Association in New Orleans.
"I was really honored to receive this award because it is given to those who have made significant contributions to science education in Louisiana during their careers," Stringer said. "That makes it really special.
"It was also special to me because I have known Claudia Fowler, the person for whom the award is named, for decades. In fact, she and I attended a summer workshop at LSU sonsored by the National Science Foundation back in 1987."
