My name is Dionna Walker and I am from Daphne, Alabama. I graduated from the Alabama School of Math and Science, and will start school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham this fall. I am spending the summer as an intern with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Alabama Field Office. I got this amazing opportunity through the American Fisheries Society by applying for their Hutton Junior Fisheries Scholarship. I will work for a total of eight weeks under my mentors: Andy Ford, Jennifer Grunewald, and Jeff Powell. I applied for this scholarship at the prompting of one of my high school biology teachers, Mr. McPhail. I was selected from a pool of many applicants. I am ready to learn all I can about fisheries science!
