This semester, our team hosted #mountairyhighschool senior intern, Dylan, who is an aspiring future Dentist!
We worked closely with Mrs. Katie Ferguson, MAHS Career Development Coordinator, and we created an internship experience unique to our ‘Dentistry with Heart’ dental practice.

Dylan was able to learn from the variety of services offered by the Dentists we have at our office (and learn from their 100+ years of combined experience)! Among those were Dr. Paresh Patel, our implant doctor (he is world-renowned as an implant dentist, having placed over 8,000 implants AND teaches the process globally to other dentists Glidewell Dental !).

Dylan also shadowed alongside our associate dentist, Dr. Evan Davis, and our practice owner, Dr. John L. Gravitte, as well as other dentists throughout the semester.

Dylan has a bright future ahead and we are so proud of him and very excited for his future contributions to the field of dentistry and oral health education! (Dylan already dresses the part of Doctor with a suit and tie every day!)

“My College of Charleston experience has been amazing,” says College of Charleston Honors College communication major Laurie Fogleman. “I love athletics at the College because I can not only have the identity of being a ‘runner’ or a ‘CofC athlete,’ but I am also able to have a life and identity outside of athletics.”

And she’s reaching these goals thanks in parts to the Lindner Family Scholarship for Communications. Created by Craig and Frances Lindner to honor their daughter, communication major Christine Lindner ’12, the Lindner Scholarship program grants one scholarship to a student in each year of study in the College of Charleston Department of Communication. It is available to a first-year student with a stated interest in communication and a strong promise for a successful career in the field; to a second-year student majoring in communication; to a third-year communication major with a qualifying GPA and a record of success in his/her academic and professional life; and to a fourth-year communication major who demonstrates significant engagement in communication-related activities at the College of Charleston or in the community.
#hssatcofc #cofccomm #lindnerscholarship

“This scholarship makes me feel proud to be a College of Charleston student, specifically a communication student,” says Fogleman, who hopes to pursue her master’s degree in communication at the College and then a career in public relations, planning and branding events and improving organizations’ marketing strategies. “It is proof that my professors have done their jobs in molding me into a successful scholar who continuously returns to the classroom, eager to soak up more knowledge. Ultimately, this scholarship has provided me with an invaluable resource: confidence.”

For that, she will always be indebted to the Lindner family.

“Thank you for believing in my college experience and giving me that inspiration to work even harder tomorrow,” says Fogleman. “I will pay this kindness forward by continuing to be a lifelong ambassador for the College.”

This #hssfeaturefriday , we salute Dr. Todd LeVasseur ‘97, Visiting Assistant Professor of Humanities and Social Sciences and Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Director!
Dr. LeVasseur counts learning from the students in his class, often about how to be a better human and to have hope for the future, among his proudest accomplishments.

As CofC Department of Religious Studies major/ Department of Philosophy College of Charleston minor at College of Charleston, he was inspired by Dr. June McDaniel and Dr. Lee Irwin. Before graduating from CofC, Dr. LeVasseur spent his sophomore year at Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA, where Dr. William Herbrechtsmeier became another powerful mentor.

While there, Dr. LeVasseur encountered old growth redwood forests for the first time and also saw the grand ancient trees being logged. As a result, he fused his environmental activism with his interest in religious studies and ventured to figure out how cosmologies and concepts of the sacred inform the treatment of the natural world. His journey took him to the Univ. of Florida for his Ph.D. in religion and nature, the only Ph.D. program of its kind.

The question that now guides his path is how can the human animal, from individual to global scales, learn to actively generate just, regenerative, and sustainable behaviors and lifeways as we move into the Anthropocene, if at all? The question motivates the courses he teaches in religious studies, environmental and sustainability studies, the First Year Experience First Year Experience at the College of Charleston, College of Charleston Honors College, and as an affiliated faculty member with CofC Women's and Gender Studies. It also motivated research on his new book, Climate Change, Religion, and Our Bodily Future.

He says his favorite memories include seeing students walk across the Cistern at graduation each year, knowing they’re heading out to make the world a better place. He also treasures the friendships he’s made across campus while directing the QEP on sustainability literacy.

Dr. LeVasseur enjoys listening to roots reggae, surfing, reading, and spending time with his family, and he dreams about “a world without racism, sexism, speciesism, queerphobia, and other intersectional oppressions, and that’s gotten off of fossil fuels.”

Honors sophomore Ansley Elkins is conducting some fascinating research on transfer RNAs this summer, under the mentorship of Biology professor (and Honors Advising Fellow) Dr. Renaud Geslain. Check out the post from our friends at the College of Charleston School of Sciences & Mathematics to learn more!

This summer, rising sophomore, and Honors student Ansley Elkins is working with Dr. Renaud Geslain to study transfer RNAs (tRNAs), a class of macromolecules that are expressed in all living organisms and that are essential for the biosynthesis of proteins.

Ansley's research project aims at establishing the first atlas of tRNA expression in mouse tissues. So far, she dissected 10 different mouse organs, generated nearly 30 replicates, and successfully optimized the protocols for the isolation of their tRNAs. During the second part of her summer internship, Ansley will monitor the abundance of 56 tRNA species across those different tissue samples using a tRNA microarray technique developed in the lab.

Once her analysis platform is up and running, she will introduce new variables such as different stages of development and different model of diseases.
