Congratulations to a military-connected student and DoDEA Europe Schools Heidelberg Lions graduate and valedictorian, Kevin Burdge! He will be returning to MIT for the next three years as a Pappalardo Fellow in Physics.
As Kevin states, "Being awarded this fellowship was truly a long shot (and a dream come true); I will give it my all to put together a research program which lives up to the astronomically high bar set by past fellows. I look forward to returning to my alma mater and engaging with the physics department in a completely different capacity than I did as an undergraduate 🙂. As icing on the cake, I’ll be working in a building which is essentially across the street from the company Moderna, which is where my wife works."
So proud of Kevin and his continued success! DoDEA Europe Schools Department of Defense Education Activity, please join us in congratulating one of our outstanding DoDEA graduates!
