NASA Region 1 encompasses the states of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

Nathanael has also performed recently with Grammy-nominated pianist Randy Porter, joining Porter’s trio for an ongoing streaming concert series in March. On April 21, he was part of the Randy Porter Quartet that performed at the John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts in Eugene, Oregon.

The chapter, entitled “Factors Associated with Fatherhood Program Effectiveness: A Randomized Controlled Trial of TYRO Dads,” describes results of a research study funded by the Fatherhood Research and Practice Network.

Eloise Hockett (Education), Stephanie Matthew (Nursing) and Elizabeth Roark Yarbrough (former nursing faculty member) recently published an article in the Journal of Service-Learning in Higher Education, entitled “Navigating Mismatched Expectations and Dissonance on International Nursing Service-Learning Trips.” The article draws from their experiences leading George Fox students on service-learning trips to Kenya.

Paige Parry (Biology) received a $2,000 Natural History Research Grant, to be paid over two years, from Western North American Naturalist for research on the contribution of natural enemies to forest recruitment limitation along a climate gradient. It will fund a field-based experiment at the long-term forest plot that her lab works at to quantify the extent to which seed predators and herbivores limit seed production and seedling recruitment, and how these effects vary with climate.
