The 2020 Jeremy C. Rietschel Graduate Mentorship Awardee
This Jeremy C. Rietschel Graduate Mentorship award honors the legacy of Dr. Jeremy C. Rietschel, a 2011 graduate who gave generously of his time, intelliegence, and skills to help other graduate students advance their research and complete their degree.
This year’s recipient is Lauren Weiss for her willingness to mentor other graduate students as well as undergrads. Her nominator wrote, “Lauren has consistently demonstrated a selfless disposition in her service as a mentor to many undergraduate and graduate students over the past eight years (during her masters and now her doctorate), and she has spent a considerable amount of time developing her teaching and mentoring skills while at UMD.”
We thank Lauren for her contribution to our program!
