Rebecca Rundell (class of 1994; pictured at right) joins faculty of SUNY-ESF. Rebecca recalls: "...by about second grade or so I decided I wanted to be a marine biologist (even though I generally only saw the ocean a few days per year!). With this in mind I finally made it to Cornell University where I had the chance to take a summer field course in Field Marine Science at Shoals Marine Lab. It was there that my interest in invertebrates was sparked."
Kristen Covino (class of 2004; pictured below, and photo of Yellow Warbler by Kristen) spends part of her study season on Appledore as a member of the University of Southern Mississippi Migratory Bird Research Group.
Amber Bratcher (class of 2004) is a grad student at the University of Maine School of Marine Sciences studying rapid on-site detection and ecological monitoring of harmful algal blooms.
Miriam Goldstein (class of 2002) is a grad student in biological oceanography at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Miriam, visited Shoals as part of a UNH Math & Marine Science program: "Shoals was pretty much the best thing that happened to me in high school!"
Melissa Duhaime (class of 2002): "Very seldom can you pinpoint pivotal moments in your life, but my great summer at Shoals was, without a doubt, one of them."
