Congratulations to EWU McNair Scholar Devin Mumey!
Devin has been selected for the Soaring Eagles Scholarship. The award is for juniors and seniors who have demonstrated grit towards attaining their degree. Devin is currently in the midst of his second EWU McNair Summer Research Internship, while working part time, and preparing for an upcoming conference. He definitely demonstrates grit in all he does to make his dreams of going to graduate school and continuing to explore lichen! For his 2022 McNair Summer Research Internship, he worked with Dr. Jessica Allen
collecting and identifying lichen species. For 2023 he is continuing this work to fully identify lichen within the Iller Creek region of Dishman Hills and beginning to explore the DNA of these lichen. EWU McNair is proud of Devin and happy to see his hard work paying off!
