Student Makes an Extraterrestrial Discovery

An International Search for New Life

From her work as a docent at UNC Asheville’s Lookout Observatory, physics senior Makennah Bristow launched an interest in new planets, and now she’s part of a team that discovered one. Her internship at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center led to finding K2-288Bb, a planet roughly twice the size of Earth located in the constellation Taurus, 226 light-years away. It’s a rare discovery, especially because of its size and the fact that this planet is in its star’s habitable zone—meaning liquid water may exist on the planet’s surface.

Faculty members Landon Ward and Dr. Graham Reynolds regularly lead students on creature adventures, including at the nearby Botanical Gardens, but this year one of Reynolds’ students took the snake search into his own hands, securing a $15,000 grant for a research position in Vietnam. UNC Asheville senior Ari Miller, a biology major, is the first undergraduate student to ever receive a Smithsonian Grant from the Global Genome Initiative (GGI) to study reptiles and amphibians. Whatever he finds will be catalogued in the GGI’s “biorepository,” a library of Earth’s genomic diversity, and will help scientists around the world better understand our planet’s biodiversity and how species evolve. Back in the states, Miller was part of a team of scientists who identified two species of gecko, which are entirely new to science and found in Myanmar.

Bristow and the team found this planet by using data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope and looking for “transits,” or the dimming of a star when a planet moves in front of it.

Fighting for Change UNC Asheville’s first homework assignment happens before classes start, with a summer reading shared by the incoming class. The pick for 2018-19 was Wes Moore’s The Other Wes Moore, a memoir chronicling the upbringing of two kids by the same name, where personal responsibility and social circumstances bring about different outcomes. The author came to campus in September, speaking to more than 600 audience members who filled UNC Asheville’s Lipinsky Hall Auditorium or tuned in via live-stream. He had a message for each one. “Each and every one of us are where we are because someone saw us there first. They were willing to wake up every morning and push for you. They were willing to wake up every morning and fight for you. They were willing to wake up every morning and fight for the hope of you,” said Moore. He pushed the audience to do the same. “To make a change in the things that need to be changed right now, it’s simply an identification of finding that thing that makes your heart beat a little bit faster…and attacking it. That’s the point. That’s the idea and the feeling behind what it is to be higher educated. Finding that ability to take that talent and that will and that push that other people instill in you and making it matter.”

definition of higher education is going to be your “ The ability to understand what is your role in changing our world or what is your role in leading…. They expect you to walk out of this place not just with a GPA but with a GPS and an idea about how you plan on leading.” —Wes Moore, 2018 Summer Reading Author

Whether on the track or in class, scholarathlete Blanton Gillespie led his team. The chemistry major, neuroscience minor, and member of the cross country and track and field teams graduated with a 3.996 GPA and earned the Manly E. Wright Award for Scholarship in the Class of 2019. He is a four-time Big South Scholar Athlete of the Year, and in 2018 he was awarded a Goldwater Scholarship, one of the most prestigious undergraduate scholarships in the natural sciences. He has published three papers in the Journal of Physical Chemistry and completed NASA fellowships, but his work doesn’t stop there. The Shelby, N.C., native plans to study medicine, then practice rural medicine in underserved Western North Carolina communities. It’s an area he gained experience in as one of 70 Pre-Health Professions Interns, offered in partnership with the Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) and funded by $20,000 from WNC Bridge Foundation. During the program, students shadow health care professionals and participate in the development, design, and implementation of a community-based research project. Gillespie leaves UNC Asheville with a few additional honors: He was named a first team Google Cloud NCAA Division I Academic All-American®, as well as the Big South Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Students Forge Ahead with AVID Scholarships Advancement Via Individual Determination is one of UNC Asheville's most generous awards, and determination is something our scholarship recipients have plenty of. The AVID Scholarship provides up to $10,000 for students who are working hard and moving ahead through their participation in the Asheville City School AVID Scholars program. These students’ determination keeps them going, and the AVID program and scholarships helps ensure their success, regardless of the obstacles or challenges they face. Our first AVID scholarship students graduated this year: management major Amanda Valdes Ruano, and Mariah Lee, who graduated with distinction in Spanish. In the fall of 2019 we welcomed PJ Jones, our newest AVID Scholarship recipient, who is looking forward to majoring in mechatronics engineering—a rigorous program with excellent career opportunities.

Three UNC Asheville students traveled the world this year with the help of the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. Over the summer, Juniors Isabella Jackson and Leah Fagan both participated in faculty-led trips to Ecuador, where they journeyed from the Amazon to the Andes to learn about natural resource dilemmas and community actions. Kacey Rudock, a junior majoring in Spanish with a minor in political science, is spending the entire fall semester in Colombia in order to immerse herself in the Spanish language and prepare herself for a possible career working with native Spanish speakers—and also to get a taste of Colombian hot chocolate, which combines chocolate and cheese and she swears is delicious.

Attorney, author, and best-selling author Bryan Stevenson speaking on campus

Words of Wisdom from Just Mercy Author Bryan Stevenson In his first visit to Asheville, attorney, activist, and best-selling author Bryan Stevenson brought a powerful message: Get proximate, change the narrative, stay hopeful, and be uncomfortable. His talk to a full-crowd of 3,000 in Kimmel Arena exemplified each of those calls to action. As the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) Stevenson led the team that created the first national memorial to victims of lynching and won major legal challenges eliminating excessive and unfair sentencing. For campus, he focused on solutions, instilling in each individual the idea that hope could be their superpower. His lecture at UNC Asheville was a special event as part of the Chancellor's Installation celebration with support from The David and Lin Brown Visionary Lecture Series and The Van Winkle Law Firm Public Policy Lectures.

The cohort model focuses on Liberal Arts Core classes, and the program is led by Dr. Regine Criser, assistant professor of German, and Dr. Patrick Bahls, director of UNC Asheville’s Honors Program and professor of mathematics.


The National Science Foundation continued its multi-million dollar support for our chemistry program with a Scholarships in STEM (S-STEM) grant for $997,988 to create a multi-faceted program between the Department of Chemistry and Student Affairs, deeply focused on supporting students. This project will provide need- and merit-based scholarships for qualified students interested in completing a chemistry degree and will enhance the learning environment for all chemistry majors by creating a novel holistic student support structure to help students overcome academic, social, and emotional challenges to be successful chemistry majors and graduates. Professor Sally Wasileski serves as the principal investigator for the Chemistry Scholars Program

Dr. Sally Wasileski, chair of chemistry and the principal investigator, will also research how the learning environment facilitates meaningful student engagement and how that engagement correlates to student achievement outcomes in order to better understand how student support impacts STEM students. Dr. Herman Holt, dean of natural sciences, Jackie McHargue, dean of students, and Jason Schmeltzer and Dr. Amanda Wolfe of the Department of Chemistry are leading work on the grant. The Department of Chemistry has previously received S-STEM Awards in 2011 and 2015.
