VIMS scientist wins national leadership award

Dr. Molly Mitchell of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science has earned an Early Career Leadership Award from the US CLIVAR Program for her efforts to develop and share sea-level forecasts and other planning tools with coastal risk managers and emergency responders in Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region, according to a VIMS release.

Mitchell is one of only nine scientists nationwide to receive the award, which will be presented today during a Town Hall hosted by US CLIVAR as part of the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco

“It’s nice to know that people at the highest levels of this field recognize the excellence that Molly brings to her work, and the promise she holds for future contributions,” said Dr. Carl Hershner, Mitchell’s supervisor as director of the Center for Coastal Resources Management at VIMS. “It’s an acknowledgment both of the work Molly has already done, and is poised to do.”
