Each month professors in Quinsigamond Community College’s STEM programs recognize and acknowledge the perseverance of one student in their prospective STEM areas. Below are the March 2020 STEM Students of the Month, with a few comments from the professors who nominated them.

Science - Rebecca St. Hilaire - nominated by Hirul Patel, Professor of Chemistry & Coordinator of Chemistry Program

“Rebecca is one of our hardworking chemistry students. I always see her strive for success with hard work. Her goal is to be a high school chemistry teacher, and I can see that she has the patience for it. Rebecca’s attitude is always to help others and this helpful quality of hers will make her a wonderful teacher in the future. With her calm nature she is able to learn new things around the chemistry lab, and has become a reliable helping hand in the Chemistry department.”

Technology -  Anthony Le – nominated by Hao Loi, professor of Computer Science & Coordinator of Computer Science Program

“Anthony Le has been a peer computer science and math tutor who assists his classmates with homework, in-class assignments, long-term projects, as well as helping his classmate preparing for the exams.  Anthony has a passion for knowledge and an uncanny ability to make anyone else understand the subject.  He is a very respected person among his classmates and no one ever feels like he is impatient with them.  If someone doesn’t understand the subject, he always comes up with a different approach to explain the topic until his classmates understand.  Anthony also is an undergraduate research assistant for the computer science department.”  

Engineering - Kyle Morrill – nominated by Jacob Longacre, professor of Electronics Engineering & Photonics Technologies

 “Kyle exemplifies the perseverance of QCC students. He first took courses at Quinsigamond Community College in 2004. He returned to QCC in 2018 and enrolled in the Electronics Engineering Technology Program, working toward his Photonics Certificate. Since returning to QCC, Kyle has excelled academically. He also brings a wealth of work experience to his photonics and electronics classes. He demonstrates a professional attitude in the classroom and provides the other students with valuable real-world context to the subject matter being presented. Kyle is a dedicated and knowledgeable student who enriches the educational experience of his classmates and will be an excellent representative for QCC in the future.”

Mathematics - Javery Mann – Philomena D’Alessandro, Professor of Mathematics

“Javery Mann, a sophomore in Engineering, has been selected for STEM Student of the Month based on his persistence in the STEM pathway.  In Spring 2018, he began his studies at QCC by taking College Algebra.  He is currently taking Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, and is on track to graduate in May 2020.  He also works in the Math Center as a Student Support Tutor, and has participated in the last two rounds of the Student Math League Competition.  Please join the Math Department in recognizing Javery for his academic achievements.”
