Student responds to editorial, Murphy Oil Scholarship

Student responds to editorial, Murphy Oil Scholarship

This editorial is a response to the editors remarks in the Feb. 26 issue of The ORACLE. An undergraduate degree is only devalued when alumni accept mediocrity in their professional lives. Graduates are the ones who bear most of the responsibility for giving value to Hendersons name.

There are many alumni who have added great worth to the degree they have acquired at Henderson – people like Robert Fisher, class of 1970, whose position as president of Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., gives not only stature to our degree, but also an idea of what future students can attain.

And there are people like Dr. Myra Hurt, a very respected cancer scientist, professor and dean of the medical college at Florida State University who has a laboratory named after her and is a frequent lecturer at Harvard Medical School.

Nations fastest-growing TU chapter creates annual scholarship

That certainly stands true for the Headwaters Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

From a total enrollment of 110 members in January 2005, the Gaylord-based group has grown to well over 400 members covering five Northeast Michigan counties – Alpena, Cheboygan, Montmorency, Otsego and Presque Isle.

That makes Headwaters the fastest-growing Trout Unlimited chapter in the country.

Among the beneficiaries of the groups newly bolstered largesse is a student at Lake Superior State University.

Scholarship to promote success in Marine Science

Scholarship to promote success in Marine Science

A Masters student at the University of Auckland had more than one reason to celebrate today  not only was it Oliver Hannafords 25th birthday, but he was also the first student to be awarded a new joint Ministry of Fisheries and National Institute of Water and Atmosphere (NIWA) graduate scholarship in quantitative fisheries science worth $25,000 a year.

Minister of Fisheries and Associate Minister of Tertiary Education Jim Anderton presented him with a cheque and a birthday cake in Auckland today. The contribution of skilled marine scientists to sustainable fisheries is invaluable. There is a world-wide shortage of marine scientists with strong mathematical and statistical backgrounds. Such skills are essential to fisheries science so the Ministry has initiated this scholarship programme as a first step towards filling the gap, he said.

Oliver Hannaford will be undertaking a Master of Science in Statistics degree, developing mathematical models of the west coast snapper fishery to use in assessing the health of the snapper stock. Im deeply grateful for the scholarship, he said. Ill be able to concentrate fully on my research without having to worry about the future. And its really encouraging to see the government investing in students.
