Markell, who handed out awards to seniors from Newark and Sussex Tech for the BioGENEius competition this week, stressed the importance of strong education in science and math.
"We’re so fortunate to have these wonderful students as well as their great teachers who make this possible. You know, in a day and age when science, technology, engineering and math jobs are those in the greatest demand," Markell says.
This year's BioGENEius competition winners were Anna Gonye from the Charter School of Wilmington and Bansri Patel from Sussex Tech.
