West Virginia university faculty members who are climbing higher

Amy Keesee

As president of WV Chapter of the Association for Women in Science, Dr. Amy Keesee (Department of Physics) has successfully implemented “Expanding Your Horizons in Math and Science (EYH)” programs in locations throughout the state. Some of these events have taken place in rural middle schools to show girls that math and science are fun. She created a database of scientists, mathematicians and engineers who would regularly commit to donating their time to an EYH conference for young girls. Amy, who in the early stages of her career, has demonstrated exemplary leadership skills. She is committed to raising the awareness of young women to careers in science, is a mentor to many and an inspiration to all women in the STEM field. Amy has reached out to professional women at WVU and throughout the state because she is committed to creating a robust workforce of women in STEM professions. (Linda Vona-Davis, Health Sciences)
