Phi Beta Kappa Prize Winner: Stephanie Jarvis

Stephanie Jarvis is a Biology and Geology double major from Shelbyville, Kentucky. Her Independent Study project, entitled “Non-stationarity in climatic response of coastal tree species along the Gulf of Alaska,” was a critical examination of climatic growth response of mountain hemlocks at different elevations in southeast Alaska, the changes since the Little Ice Age, and the implications of that for tree-ring based climate reconstructions. While at Wooster, Stephanie has served as President of the Community Bike Program, Vice-President of Geoclub, and a student member of the Committee for a Sustainable Campus. She was also involved in the Organic Farming Club, the Campus Recycling Committee, and the Varsity Swim Team. She spent a summer studying tree-ring based climate reconstruction in Glacier Bay. Next year, Stephanie will attend Southern Illinois University Carbondale for graduate school in Geology.
