Hume-Fogg, MLK and Stratford make a splash with water research
High school research-scientists-in-training from Hume-Fogg, MLK and Stratford took their hard work to the professionals last week at the Tennessee Water Resources Symposium. Zheer Ahmed from MLK, Petra Byl from Hume Fogg, and Desiree Schutt and Destinee Schutt from Stratford STEM Magnet High joined other students from across Tennessee in presenting posters of their work in water research.

BIG congrats to Petra Byl, who won TWO prizes: First place for high school presentations and the People's Choice Award for best research and poster. The latter is not just a high school prize.

Her paper, by the way, was titled: Antibiotic Resistance and Substrate Utilization by Bacteria Affiliated with Cave Streams at Different Levels of Mammoth Cave.
Congrats to Petra and all of the students who competed. We're proud of you!
