Progress Traced of Wood
Science Award Recipients
In 1969 the Department of Science decided
to honor Miss Mary E. Wood, professor
emeritus of biology, by naming the annual
science award after her. Miss Wood died
last year and the members of the Depart
ment of Science were reminiscing about her
and the various Science Award winners of
It was decided to purchase a plaque in
memory of Miis Wood, to inscribe on it the
name of each recipient and place it in the
lobby of Carrie Savage Camp Hall (our new
science-math facility). During the summer,
the Chowan Science Club purchased a
beautiful plaque and had it engraved with
the name and date of each recipient.
It was suggested that a small follow-up of
these individuals be attempted in order to
find out where they were and what they
were presently doing. This was done by way
of a letter to the last known address of each
(sometimes to the parent’s address). Two
letters were returned stamped “Not
Deliverable - No Forwarding Address”.
There was no response from three other in
quiries. If someone might know the correct
address of these people, please let us know
so that we can inform them of this additional
