Emilee Stenson, a senior from Attica, has been named Student of the Month for September by the Office of Residence Life.

Ms. Stenson was nominated by Department of English Professor Jeanette McVicker, who described Stenson as a “stellar, inquisitive, intellectually curious and incredibly responsible Honors student.” Stenson is majoring in Molecular Genetics and has minors in Chemistry and English. She does undergraduate research of 20th century English writer Virginia Woolf with Dr. McVicker and in cancer biology in the lab of Department of Biology Assistant Professor Nicholas Quintyne.

Additionally, Stenson is a member of the Fredonia Honors Program, the biological honor society Beta Beta Beta and the Health Professions Club. She is also a Learning Center tutor in biology and chemistry, a student ambassador, cell biology teaching assistant and a patient care aide at Brooks Memorial Hospital.

Outside of school and work, Stenson enjoys hiking, being outdoors, playing saxophone and writing.

When asked her favorite things about Fredonia, Stenson said, “There’s so much that I’ve loved about Fredonia in the years I’ve been here! I love the Science Center, the campus itself, the opportunities to do research, working with a variety of professors, getting involved in activities on campus and all of the awesome friends that I’ve made.”

Stenson’s goals after graduation in May 2021 include entering a post-baccalaureate medical research program through the National Institutes of Health. Following that year of research, Stenson plans to attend medical school to become a physician in emergency medicine, while continuing to do research and activism/advocacy work.

The Student of the Month program was implemented in 2003 to recognize students who are well-rounded, excel in their academics and contribute positively to the campus and community. Students can be nominated online.
