JCHS Alumnus named 2015
Goldwater Scholar
Congratulations John Gillies!
University of Oregon juniors Kyla Martichuski and John Gillies have been named 2015 Goldwater Scholars, a prestigious national award that recognizes under-graduates for their research work in mathematics, science and engineering.

Martichuski and Gillies are the only recipients from an Oregon university. Of the 1,200 applicants, 260 were selected to receive the scholarship.

Martichuski and Gillies will each receive up to $7,500 for tuition, fees, and room and board for their senior years. More importantly, the two survived a rigorous application process to emerge with national recognition of their undergraduate research.

Gillies, from Junction City, is a biochemistry major with a minor in business administration whose research looks at protein interaction with single-strand DNA. He works in Andrew Marcus’ lab in the Institute of Molecular Biology. 

“I took a general chemistry class my freshman year from Andrew Marcus,” Gillies said. “I read one of his papers and went in to talk about it with him. That led to a spot in the lab and getting to work on this research.

“It’s a great honor to win this award, especially given its prestige,” he said. “The funding is nice, of course, but what I appreciate most is getting the recognition for the research I have done.”

The Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation  is a federally endowed agency created in 1986.
