Buies Creek, N.C.—Graduate Meredith A. Greene received one of Campbell University’s highest honors during spring commencement exercises on Saturday, May 15. Greene, who maintained a perfect 4.0 grade point average, was the recipient of the 2010 Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award given to those students who not only demonstrate outstanding academic performance but moral and civic responsibility as well.
A biochemistry major and a math minor, Greene is a member of the honor societies Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Eta Sigma, Epsilon Pi Eta and Allied Health/Pre-Med. During her Campbell career, Greene garnered several research awards, most notably as a National Science Foundation award recipient for her work at the University of Kentucky during the summer of ’08.
She was active in numerous clubs and service organizations, including the Chemistry Club, where she served as president and treasurer, the Walker Biology Club, the Baptist Student Union, Circle K. and Operation Inasmuch. Greene also participated in several mission trips and worked as a lab assistant in general chemistry and cell biology at Campbell for several semesters.
In August 2010, she will begin work on her Ph.D. in molecular medicine and translational science at Wake Forest University. Greene is the daughter of Dr. Dwaine Greene, Campbell’s vice president for Academic Affairs and Provost, and his wife Carolyn.
