Steward student wins national science award


Steward School eighth-grader Gracie Goodpasture recently was honored by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) with the 2015 Angela Award, presented annually to one female student in grades 5-8 from the United States who has a strong connection to science.

The award and a $1,000 savings bond were presented to Goodpasture by NSTA President Dr. Juliana Texley at an award ceremony held at The Steward School.

In the Angela Award application, Goodpsature was required to detail her interests in science. She described her experience working with Perdue Farms on a third-grade class project, which led her to become interested in chickens. She put together innovative ideas about raising them at home and worked with Jim Perdue, chairman of Perdue Farms, who has remained her mentor and wrote a recommendation for her NSTA application. > Read more.
