Congratulations to Dr. Claudia Benitez-Nelson who was awarded the Sulzman Award for Excellence in Education and Mentoring in 2014. Dr. Benitez-Nelson is a faculty member of the Marine Science Program and the Dept. of Earth and Ocean Sciences at University of South Carolina. The Sulzman Award for Excellence in Education and Mentoring is given annually to one mid-career female scientist (no more than 15 years post-degree) for significant contributions as a role model and mentor for the next generation of biogeoscientists. This award is to honor Elizabeth Sulzman, an isotope biogeochemist and soil scientist whose enthusiasm for teaching awed many undergraduates at Oregon State University.
