Aug. 15, 2017 – Tyneshia Griffin and Lindsay Wentzel were among the Virginia Tech students selected to speak at this year’s Ut Prosim Society Celebration. Griffin, a geography major from Prince George, Virginia, shared about her experience in the college’s Sustainability Institute. Wentzel, a fish and wildlife conservation double major from Yorktown, Virginia, spoke about her undergraduate research project on black bears as well as her time studying red wolves and elephants with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute. She was the only student presenter at the celebration’s HokieTalks event.
