WSGC Student Spotlight: Katherine McClain

March 11, 2024

Congratulations to the week’s #WSGCStudentSpotlight, Katherine McClain! Katherine is the recipient of the 2022-2023 Unmanned Ariel Vehicle Program.

Katherine McClain is a senior Geoscience major from Lawrence University. She spent the summer investigating the effects of prescribed fire on plant communities in a prairie ecosystem with a team consisting of three other students: Ava Beyers, a junior Geoscience and Environmental Science double major from Carthage College; Trent Ediger, a senior Geoscience major from Lawrence University; and Haley Siculan, a senior Environmental Science major from Lawrence University. She and her team members share a passion for science and protecting the earth. Fueled by these passions, the team elected to pursue a research project that was not only science-based but would also help the planet. The team is grateful for the fantastic opportunity to further their scientific skills and grow as researchers.

Congratulations, Katherine, and best of luck in your future!
