Ashland science grads heading off to diverse careers

Cassie Nix, Alicia Myatt and Ainsley Moore
We recently posted a number of photos from this year's commencement ceremonies on our Facebook page.  Looking through some additional photos taken by Dr. Brauner I found one that really demonstrates the diverse types of careers that our graduates are pursuing after finishing their science degrees at Ashland University.

Cassie Nix earned her bachelor's degree as a triple major in Biology, Toxicology and Environmental Science.  She earned the Department of Biology/Toxicology's outstanding senior award and will now be pursuing a PhD in the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology at Oregon State University.

Alicia Myatt earned her degree in Biology and was a member of the University's honors program and a Choose Ohio First Scholar.  She successfully defended her honors thesis research on the use of different scents to enrich the behavior of cats housed at a cat shelter in the City of Ashland, were she served as a volunteer.  Alicia will be starting veterinary school at The Ohio State University this Fall.

Ainsley Moore earned her bachelor's degree in Biology and has been hired by the entomology department at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center in Wooster, Ohio, to assist graduate students with their research.  Ainsley would like to eventually earn her master's degree in either entomology or zoology.
