Stigall to recieve Charles Schuchert Award

by Alycia Stigall

I am extremely honored to be selected as the recipient of the 2016 Charles Schuchert Award from the Paleontological Society. This prestigious award is given to a paleontologist under the age of 40 who’s early career reflects excellence and promise in the science of paleontology, and thus reflects the objectives and standards of the Paleontological Society.

The award is named for Charles Schuchert, an Cincinnati-born paleontologist whose career emphasized using Paleozoic brachiopods as tools to understand large scale patterns in Earth’s history.  I have always greatly admired Schuchert as a scientist, and I am very grateful to receive this award from my home society reflecting my impact on the field of paleontology.

It is a high honor to be included among this list of past recipients.
