My name is Morgan Fair and I’m from Aiken, SC. Currently, I’m a sophomore Chemistry major with a minor in mathematics attending Tuskegee University. This past summer I was selected to participate in the 2016 NSF (REU) Program in the Engineering Research Center for Biorenewables Chemicals for Iowa State. I was also selected to lead a research team that focused on field research and creating educational modules to present at area schools. During the past year I earned certification as a certified Alabama Water Watch monitor which allows me to monitor Alabama’s lakes, streams, and coasts. I am dedicated and have consistent work ethics. I have always been a go-getter and I’m striving to reach the level necessary for me to succeed in life.
