Dr. Margaret-Mary Sulentic Dowell, Cecil  “Pete” Taylor Endowed Professor in the Lutrill & Pearl Payne School of Education and Director of the LSU Writing Project, served as Frazier’s major professor. Sulentic Dowell shared, “Adronisha is poised and ready for this fellowship experience. I am very excited for her but not surprised; she was an exceptional doctoral candidate. Adronisha is the epitome of a changemaker.” During Frazier’s PhD journey, she published and was selected as an Open Education Resource (OER) Fellow, sponsored by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Frazier was also the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Young Ambassador to Louisiana from 2021 through 2023. Frazier earned her BA in biological science and her Master of Arts in biological sciences from Southeastern University. While earning her PhD, she also earned a Masters in Applied Research, Measurement & Evaluation from LSU, indicative of her dive, work ethic, and never-ending quest for knowledge.

The research-focused fellowship aligns with Frazier’ research agenda which includes creating and implementing engaging STEM content for secondary and higher education to improve scientific literacy and underrepresented groups in science education. “I am incredibly honored to receive this award,” Frazier stated. “It is significant as I continue my career as a researcher.“

"We are very proud of this accomplishment and Adronisha’s steady progress in her career," Eugene Kennedy, Interim Director of the Lutrill & Pearl Payne School of Education said. "Congratulations, Adronisha!"
