“It has been my pleasure to be a part of the Clayton State Natural Science Department as well as working with Dr. Norflus. It’s amazing what hard work and determination can get you. While attending the MAC/ASBC meeting this past December I was exposed to many different areas of Biological research from students and professors from all over the world. I am proud to say that I was able to place third amongst the undergraduate students of the MAC awardees,” says Brinson.
