Story ideas this week include grants continuing to roll in for the College of Science and Mathematics, a concert for a cause and baking for a living following one grad’s Augusta University days.

College of Science and Mathematics stays focused on grant-funded research

Despite the challenges COVID-19 has posed, the College of Science and Mathematics continues to receive numerous grants to fund research projects. “As is the case for everyone at Augusta University and beyond, COVID-19 and other obstacles have presented a significant challenge over the past year or so, but I am more excited than ever to make discoveries with these talented students,” said Dr. Laurence Miller, associate professor in the COSM.

Wycliffe Gordon to headline benefit concert

The annual Jessye Norman School of the Arts benefit concert will be headlined by Wycliffe Gordon and Friends. This will be a virtual concert at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 10. Gordon, one of Augusta’s most well-known musicians, is the director of jazz studies in the Department of Music at Pamplin College of Arts and Humanities, and Social Sciences. The virtual concert will benefit the JNSA in their mission to provide high-quality art instruction to students in the Augusta area.
