At age 6, Hannah Clipp got lost…but she found a lifelong passion in the process.
Clipp, of Bel Air, Maryland, stopped to admire ducks swimming in a fountain at the National Zoo long enough that her parents briefly lost sight of her.
Also an Honors College student, Clipp made WVU history in April by earning both the prestigious Udall and Goldwater scholarships.
While Clipp has excelled academically, much of her work has been done beyond the classroom.
Since coming to WVU, Clipp has conducted golden surveys, collected insect samples from knee-deep mud and endured icy winds and sleet to check on black bear dens, among other educational adventures.
Eventually, Clipp hopes to earn her Ph.D. in wildlife biology conservation.
Her story is just one of many in which students at WVU have pursued their passions while studying at the University. You can read more about her and students like her at http://projectme.wvu.edu/
