As Assistant Director of the program I am afforded the opportunity to work with an array of wonderful people, within the institution, as well as externally. To these people I would like to say thank you for all your help and assistance you provide the McNair Program. Without us working together as a unit we would not be a success. The staff, mentors, liaisons, and scholars have gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that the McNair Program is #1.

Last, but not least, I would like to thank our scholars. As you view this website you will see the determination, hard work, and dedication that the students exhibit. The students are some of the best and brightest, and I know they will obtain what they are seeking-the professorate.

Let me also add that this webpage is the initial research project of Pamela Pearson, a 1998 scholar. Pam's discipline is computer science; thus her summer research was to develop a way to show her skills. I take great pride in saying that she has accomplished this goal.  The webpage is currently maintained by Brenteria Travis and myself.

 If you have any inquiries or comments please direct them to the Director or myself. Thank you for visiting our site.
