Emerging from the cocoon of two years of COVID 19- imposed inertia against normal in-person activities, the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is ready to launch its traditional annual week-long Science in Action activities with outburst of energy, vim and vigor.
The activities will burst forth on Tuesday afternoon, February 7th, 2023 with Esports-Cybersecurity Fair that brings to the campus two Cybersecurity experts and an Esports winning Coach. On that afternoon, Mr. William Littleton of SPA WAR North Charleston, will team up with Dr. Orenthio Goodwin of Morris College to present innovations and lucrative Careers in Cybersecurity, while Coach Kris Weissmann of the USC-Sumter and Drake Deal of Pinnacle Network Solution’s will assist Morris College’s nascent Esports teams as they compete against each other.
The morning of Wednesday, February 8th will connect Stellar Graduates with their Alma Mater in classroom visitations that rekindle memories and impart experiences, knowledge and methodologies of success. Among the Stellar Graduates are: A skillful and masterful nurse (Miyosha Brimfield), an experienced dentist (Kareem Sprattling), an oncology nimble researcher (Aposia Singleton), an environmental health manager analyst (Katlyn Benjamin), and an astute administrator (Nakia Miller).
Wednesday afternoon’s Career Fair will feature professionals of various expertise: Health Professionals (Prisma Health-Tuomey; McLeod Health), Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, Becton-Dickinson, Nova Molecular Technologies, Thompson Industrial Services, and Biotechnology Graduate Program (Claflin University).
These activities are designed to help our students chart their future careers as they emulate the successful maps drawn by professionals.
On Thursday morning, Dr. Ahmed Sean Alford will grace Morris College’s Neal-Jones Auditorium stage during the Assembly Program with a message that proclaims that Savannah River Nuclear Solutions attempts to make our world safer. Taren Dubose, the President of the STEM Club, will preside over the Assembly Program.
