The Council of Engineering Deans of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Lockheed Martin Corporation and US Black Engineer and Information Technology magazine has selected Michelle Wynter of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Vicksburg as a Science Spectrum Trailblazer for 2012. Wynter was recognized for her achievements at a luncheon during the 2013 Black Engineer of the Year Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics conference held recently in Washington, D.C. Wynter received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Alcorn State University in 2000, followed in 2002 by her master’s degree in biology education. She has been selected for long-term training for the 2013/2014 academic year, and will attend Louisiana State University to pursue a doctorate in agronomy. In addition to her role as a research biologist, Wynter enjoys spending time with her husband, Gary, photography, traveling and volunteering with her church.
