2018 NASA Fellowship Winners at Wesleyan

BUCKHANNON — The NASA WV Space Grant Consortium has awarded NASA Fellowships to 11 West Virginia Wesleyan College’s physics students. The announcement was made by Dr. Joseph Wiest, Professor of Physics. The student recipients are paid a stipend to work on a research project. “Winners are selected based on their academic record and their commitment to a discipline of interest to NASA,” said Dr. Wiest, who also serves as a member of the NASA Board.

The students are juniors Spencer Rodgers of Wheeling and Joshua Tenney of Tallmansville; sophomores Richard Calo of Martinsburg and Luke Feldhake of Beaver; and freshmen Justin Bibey of Elkins, Carson Fox of Ravenswood, Justin Knotts of Morgantown, Dominick Lough of Grafton, Virginia Martin of Wiley Ford, Baylee Senator of Chapmanville and Michael Winston of Lewisburg.

Wesleyan is a long-time member of the NASA WV Space Grant Consortium.  In addition to awarding fellowships during the academic year and each summer, the consortium provides technical advice to the College’s Space Club building payloads to be launched from NASA rockets.

Wesleyan, which has over 80 physics majors, offers a bachelor of arts in physics and a bachelor of science in applied physics.  The College also has 3-2 engineering agreements with the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia University.
