Gossage earns awards for research
By Tommy Newton
10 Gatton Academy students earned state and regional awards at the Louisville Regional Science & Engineering Fair (LRSEF) and at the virtual Kentucky Science & Engineering Fair (KY-SEF).
Among them was Maggie Gossage, a Russell Springs senior from Russell Co. HS, who earned second place in the Behavioral and Social Sciences category and the Office of Naval Research's Special Award at LRSEF for her research, "Male Body Image and Action Figure Physiques." She is mentored by Dr. Rick Grieve in WKU's Department of Psychology.
Gatton Academy juniors Gloria Huang (South Warren HS, Bowling Green) and Diksha Satish (Western Hills HS, Frankfort) recently qualified for the prestigious Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).
Meanwhile, 10 other Gatton Academy students earned state and regional awards at the Louisville Regional Science & Engineering Fair (LRSEF) and at the virtual Kentucky Science & Engineering Fair (KY-SEF). These students include Shreeya Arora, a Louisville junior from duPont Manual HS, Natalie Cooper, a LaGrange senior from Oldham Co. HS, Maggie Gossage, a Russell Springs senior from Russell Co. HS, Jocelyn Martin, a Russell senior from Greenup Co. HS, Elizabeth Morgan, a Crestwood senior from Oldham Co. HS, Lukas Negron, a Frankfort senior from Western Hills HS, Aarini Panzade, a Louisville junior from duPont Manual HS, Aarohi Panzade, a Louisville junior from duPont Manual HS, Darby Tassell, a Bowling Green senior from Bowling Green HS, and Elisha VanZant, a Lexington senior from Henry Clay HS.
The LRSEF was held on March 7, and all 12 students earned a host of awards at this event. The annual event is for students in grades 6 - 12. Students from 52 Kentucky counties may enter the fair. The in-person KY-SEF was replaced with a virtual format this year on March 28 to adhere to public health recommendations. Nearly 300 participants competed for category and special awards, and one Gatton Academy student earned a state award.
The Regeneron ISEF that Huang and Satish qualified for was previously-scheduled to take place this May in Anaheim, CA. It has now been canceled due to COVID-19, though Huang and Satish are still recognized as Regeneron ISEF finalists and as alumni of the prestigious Society for Science & the Public.
The awards received by Gatton students are as follows:
