Overton Secures Research Fellowship

Northeast Magnet

We are thrilled to congratulate Kameryn Overton, Northeast Magnet High School, 2020, on her recent graduation from Tuskegee University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Environmental, Natural Resources, and Plant Sciences with a minor in Biology.

This summer, Kameryn returned to Annapolis, Maryland, to undertake a second internship with the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. During this internship, she will participate in stakeholder engagement work and assist in coordinating and facilitating a community science event.

Following the summer internship, Kameryn has been selected for a role in the One Health WV Project, a one-year research fellowship in Morgantown, West Virginia. This program aims to connect recent graduates with STEM mentors and prepare them for careers in the One Health field, which integrates human, animal, and environmental health.

Kameryn will collaborate with Dr. Gregory Dahle from West Virginia University on a project investigating the relationship between urban canopy coverage, air pollution, and asthma. Kameryn shared, “I am very excited to work with Dr. Dahle in person and have the opportunity to conduct research from the One Health lens!”

Congratulations, Kameryn!
