Southeast Graduate Student Receives Scholarship from Missouri Chapter of the Wildlife Society

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

Feb. 25, 2008 – Brennan “Kyle” Swallow, a second-year graduate student pursuing a master of natural science in biology degree, has been awarded the James D. Chambers Memorial Scholarship by the Missouri chapter of the Wildlife Society.

The scholarship is awarded annually to a Missouri graduate or senior undergraduate student majoring in wildlife ecology or natural resources conservation. It was established in 1996 by Chambers’ parents, Glenn D. and Jeannie Chambers, to honor their son, a wildlife and music student who died just before beginning graduate school.

Swallow is studying the life history of a fish called the banded sculpin. He received the award Jan. 31 at the Missouri chapter of the Wildlife Society’s annual meeting at the Lake of the Ozarks, and he was recognized during the coinciding Missouri Natural Resources Conference. He is the second recipient from Southeast to receive the scholarship.
