WVU recognizes Remeri McClanahan for work on Project Appalachian Coders

West Virginia University recently announced Remeri McClanahan, a junior majoring in neuroscience, as the 2024 WVU Undergraduate Student Employee of the Year.

McClanahan, a native of Princeton, W.Va., exemplified dedication and excellence in their role as an Undergraduate Research Assistant on the Project Appalachian Coders grant team under the direction of Carla Brigandi, an associate professor in the School of Education.

"Remeri is a team player who collaborates effectively with all grant stakeholders, regardless of their role or responsibility," Brigandi said. “Their commitment to enhancing computational thinking in rural, low-income Appalachian communities through the development and implementation of intervention materials has left a lasting impact on both the project and the communities it serves.”

Brigandi noted McClanahan’s versatility, mentioning their completion of WVU’s Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program for Social and Behavioral Research and assistance at professional learning events. McClanahan’s dedication to fostering a collaborative and supportive environment among researchers, teachers, parents, and school administrators has been instrumental in the success of the project.
