Jamaican science professor making waves "EXCELSIOR High School can boast a comparatively lengthy list of distinguished alumni among whom Patricia Martin-DeLeon represents the very best of the best. She is a Jamaican who commands national and international recognition and whose accomplishments are soon to be formally recognised by the University of the West Indies.
This University of Delaware Trustees Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences was one of nine educators selected in 2007 for the prestigious US Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring presented by President Barack Obama at the White House on January 6. The winners are chosen by a panel of distinguished scientists, mathematicians and educators after initial selection at the state level."
