♦ RCC Student Wins First Place in Science Contest; Is Also One of 29 Who Shine 

Share-Leigh Arneaud-Bernard, a Biological Science major at RCC, has won first place in the 2013 Ruth and William 
Silen, M.D. Awards, which "recognize participants who deliver outstanding oral presentations and who create exceptional 
scientific posters." Share-Leigh's poster presentation was titled Reclassification of Hodgkin's lymphoma to Increase Treatment 
Efficacy. 

Her research was guided by Dr. Alfred Gaskin, who she described as "one of the most student-orientated professors at 
Roxbury Community College." In winning this year's Award, Share-Leigh becomes the second consecutive RCC student 
to win first place in the Ruth and William Silen, M.D. Awards, a remarkable achievement. Share-Leigh is RCC's choice to 
represent the College at the 29 Who Shine State House event in May, which recognizes outstanding students from the 29 



Massachusetts public universities, colleges, and community colleges.
