CLASS OF 2009
|L to R: Winncy Cheung, Stephanie Lyons (back), Tiffany Paonessa, Katrina Wiechmann|
WAI SZE (WINNCY) CHEUNG - CHEERFUL PROBLEM SOLVER
Winncy came to RMWC from Hong Kong bringing a wonderful combination of cheerfulness and fine mathematical skills. Fast-talking Winncy spent the summer after her sophomore year doing research on spectroscopy at RMWC. She spent the summer after her junior year in Germany doing research on nanoparticles. Winncy was a double major in economics and physics. She also served as president of SPS. At graduation her plans were uncertain.
STEPHANIE LYONS - DEDICATED, HARDWORKING
Stephanie knows how to work hard and persevere. Her success will be entirely self-made. She spent her junior year at the University of Reading in England and the summers after her sophomore and junior years doing research in experimental nuclear physics at the University of Notre Dame. Stephanie began study towards a Ph.D. in nuclear physics at Notre Dame in September, 2009.
Update, April, 2010: Stephanie has been awarded a Krell Institute Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship.
TIFFANY PAONESSA - QUICK THINKER
Perhaps the only student fully capable of understanding my references to N.J. culture, Tiffany was quick to answer questions in class. She spent her junior year at the University of Reading in England. Tiffany was a physics and biology major with good, practical common sense. Shortly after graduation she obtained the position of Quality Assurance Specialist Intern for the Defense Contract Management Agency working at the BWXT nuclear site in Lynchburg, VA.
KATRINA WIECHMANN - MANY INTERESTS
Katrina may not follow the straightest road through life, but she will most likely find some way to enjoy the twists and turns. She spent her junior year at the University of Reading in England and the summer after her sophomore year doing research in spectroscopy at RMWC. Katrina will pursue graduate study in experimental archaeology at Exeter University in England.
