Griffin Geib receives the Paul and Thea Sager Award for Excellence in Scientific Scholarship
Every year, the Paul and Thea Sager Award for Excellence in Scientific Scholarship recognizes a UW-Green Bay undergraduate student for their award-winning scientific composition, which can include a scholarly scientific article, lab report, review of scientific literature, or other similar writings. The Sager Scholarship was created in 2009 by retired faculty members Dr. Thea Sager and the late Dr. Paul Sager, in memory and admiration of Chancellor Emeritus Edward Weidner and his commitment to hands-on student learning and the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum. The 2023 recipient receives recognition and a monetary award of $1,500.
This year’s winner of the Sager Scholarship is Griffin Geib for his paper entitled “Drinking Water Treatment Residuals Utilized in Edge of Field Technology for Phosphorous Adsorption.” Geib, who majored in Environmental Science and Biology, wrote his submission as part of a capstone course instructed by Dr. Patrick Forsythe with research conducted by Dr. Michael Holly, Geib, and other students.
More than 80 students submitted competitive papers across a large variety of topics for this year’s competition, which was judged by Cofrin Center for Biodiversity staff and faculty in the College of Science, Engineering and Technology. The Cofrin Center for Biodiversity sincerely congratulates all the candidates for their writing submissions to this competition and thanks the committee who selected a winner.
