NFA Alumni in the News! NFA Grad Presents Research
Newburgh resident and recent Hamilton College geosciences graduate Juanita Gordon presented her senior thesis work as an ePoster at the Geological Society of America Northeastern Online Section Meeting. Her poster was in the Sedimentology, Stratigraphy, and Paleontology Session. Hamilton Professor of Geosciences Cynthia Domack was a co-author. Gordon's project was creating a guidebook for the geology of the Caribbean island of St. Kitts (carbonate grains of biological origin in the beach sands).
Gordon has accepted an AmeriCorps internship in New Orleans for a program focused on STEM with under-represented youth.
Gordon is a graduate of Newburgh Free Academy North Campus in 2017 and graduated from Hamilton College in May.
