Adam Schefkind has been selected to receive the 2015 Harrison D. Stalker Award from the Department of Biology in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.
This award is named in honor of the late Harrison D. Stalker, a renowned evolutionary biologist and a world-class photographer.
The award is given annually to a graduating biology major whose undergraduate career combines outstanding scientific scholarship with significant contributions in the arts and humanities.
Schefkind, a biology major with minors in public health and in jazz studies, all in Arts & Sciences, also plays the alto saxophone in small jazz ensembles. This year, he became the first student to headline Jazz at Holmes.
