Honors College Alumna Jocelyn Skolnik ’07 has been selected by the Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida as the 2017 recipient of the organization’s Emerald Award for Global Citizenship for her work as executive director of El Sol.

An immigrant from Guatemala, Skolnik became a passionate advocate for the Guatemalan community while working to help fund El Sol, Jupiter’s Neighborhood Resource Center.

Since becoming the executive director of El Sol, Skolnik has seen the center expand into a multipurpose clearinghouse for resources to day laborers and their families. In September of 2013, Skolnik was named a “Champion of Change,” a title the White House bestows on individuals who have worked to promote positive change in their communities.

Students Present Research at the 38th Annual Gopher Tortoise Council Meeting Richard Gordon
Honors College undergraduates Lauren Fremont and David Lucien presented at the 38th Annual Gopher Tortoise Council Meeting at Ravine Gardens State Park in Palatka, FL. Lucien (pictured) presented research on “Ingestion of gastroliths by juvenile and male gopher tortoises at the Abacoa Greenway and Juno Dunes.” His study involved taking radiographs of tortoises to see if they were swallowing fossil shells, bones, and stones as a way to supplement their calcium intake when growing. Fremont gave an oral presentation, co-authored with former HC undergrad Kayla Villanueva, on "Hematology and URTD status of gopher tortoises in the Abacoa Greenway.” She examined the blood chemistry of gopher tortoises and the relationship of that to an infection known as upper respiratory tract disease in gopher tortoises.
