Black History Month Celebrated at PNNL


On Thursday February 25, Wayne Martin was awarded the 2010 Community Stewardship Award at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Martin began his work at the lab with only a bachelor’s degree and then he met Bill Wiley who was the director at the lab from 1984 until 1996. Wiley took an interest in Martin and encouraged him to do things he never thought he could do. Martin went on to get his doctorate and is a mentor to graduate students at the lab. The Black History Month Panel stated that the need for black scientists is still as strong as ever, Martin adds that the need for students of all races in math and science is strong and they need to be encouraged to go into such fields. Martin states that such encouragement starts in the home, with parents challenging their children to take the more difficult math or science classes in high schools.
