Jack is our resident student worker at the bee lab and assists with just about everything that needs to be done, from making sugar syrup and assisting in the fieldwork to counting mites on sticky screens and other lab duties. Jack hails from Madison County, GA. He grew up on the family chicken farm; so, hard work is not a foreign commodity to him. Currently, he is enrolled at North Georgia University as a Biology major, but he looks forward to transferring to UGA and completing his undergraduate pursuits here. If we have our way, he will soon be a graduate entomology student here in the Honey Bee Program!
The work with honey bees appeals to Jack’s interest in Biology and has proven to be a valuable scientific experience for him. When not working, going to class, or studying Chemistry, his time is spent outdoors: biking or backpacking the many trails in the Appalachian Mountains. Jack finds peace and relaxation in the highlands. He also enjoys wakeboarding and other watersports.
