Dear Students, Colleagues, and Alumni;
You may have noticed this issue of The Honors Discovery is covering two semesters. That's because we're late. Yes, that's the simple truth of it. Instead of saying nothing, or putting out one issue right after another, we decided to give ourselves a break and do a combo issue. No excuses. That's how we roll.

Ayana Ghosh, Honors Physics Major, Concentration in Abstract Math
As a physics student, Ayana dreamed of presenting her research at the American Physical Society (APS) March Meeting, which she learned about from her professors. Each year, it brings together nearly 10,000 physicists and students from industry, universities, and major labs throughout the world.
Dr. Gresock received her B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Pennsylvania State University and her Ph.D. in Business Administration with concentrations in Strategy and Entrepreneurship and a minor in Research Methods from the University of Central Florida. She has also earned a graduate certificate in Teaching with Technology. Currently, she is Assistant Professor of Management in the School of Management. She has been involved with the Honors Program for two years and is a member of the Honors Council.
Dr. Chris Houston is currently a Senior Principal Scientist for Bausch + Lomb who specializes in problem solving, particularly involving trace analysis and identification of unknown chemical entities. He received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry with a minor in Biochemistry from Indiana University-Bloomington. "One of the greatest things about the Honors Program, for me, was the peer group," said Dr. Houston. "Starting college as a shy teenager, I immediately met and became close with a variety of bright, interesting people that really enriched my college experience."
