Wallace Community College Selma Student selected to attend C-DEBI Global Environmental Microbiology (GEM) course


Micah Durham, a sophomore at Wallace Community College Selma has been selected C-DEBI Global Environmental Microbiology (GEM) course this summer at the University of Southern California. The GEM course is designed to provide students interested in microbiology hands-on experience with professional working methods as well as a strong foundation in the concepts fundamental to contemporary research. GEM will last from June 5, 2016 through July 1, 2016 with the first week being held at USC’s University Park Campus in Los Angeles, then on to the Eastern Sierra Mountains, and finally to the Wrigley Marine Science Center on nearby Santa Catalina Island. Course expenses, room and board, and travel to the Los Angeles area will be provided by C-DEBI.

Durham, who plans on becoming a nurse, was urged by her WCCS biology instructor Mrs. Antionetta Baldwin to apply for the program. After giving it some thought, Durham decided to apply “because it will be a great opportunity to further my career in nursing,” said Durham.  “I encourage my students to take advantage of every opportunity that provides exposure for new learning experiences.  I am just elated that Micah applied and ultimately be chosen for a wonderful opportunity that will allow her to further her knowledge in microbiology,” said Baldwin.
