STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma State University employee is among 10 people to be honored this week by the White House.
Danielle Lee, a postdoctoral associate in zoology at the Stillwater-based school, will be recognized Wednesday for being a "Champion of Change."
The honor comes for her innovation in creating diversity and access in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.
She blogs in The Urban Scientist about her research and evolutionary biology as well as diversity and inclusion in the sciences. The Urban Scientist is hosted by Scientific American Blog Network.
The Champions of Change program was created as an opportunity for the White House to feature people and businesses working to empower and inspire others in their communities.
