Robert James Smiddy Memorial Endowment Fund
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who
died. Rather we should thank God that such men
lived. --George S. Patton, Jr. A great son,
brother and friend, an extremely talented
musician, an excellent swimmer, an outstanding
student and an amazing scientist are some of the
qualities that describe Robert. Junior, as his
lab mates used to call him, will be thoroughly
missed by them. He became a member of the Mathee
lab crew less than a year ago and in a limited
time he was able to gain everyones love and
admiration. As a Biology Honors student and
winner of a RISE scholarship he soon became an
unwearied worker. All he could think about was
finishing his research on the alginate gene
expression in Pseudomonas aeruginosa to be able
to write his undergraduate thesis. His plans
were to enter the MD-PhD dual program in 2005 and
the ones who knew him had no doubt he would have
obtained his immediate goal. The Robert James
Smiddy Memorial Endowment Fund at Florida
International University has been created to
acknowledge and perpetuate the life and
excelling academic and scientific/research
achievements of Junior. The award will be
conferred once a a year to the
undergraduate student who carries undergraduate
research under the Biology Honors Program and who
complies with all the requirements established by
the RJS Memorial Award Committee. Candidates
will be judged not only for the quality of their
research and thesis, but also based upon his/her
ability to communicate. Our current total
is 26,000 which ensures its perpetuity. In order
to trigger the Florida State match as well as to
provide a scholarship, we need to raise the fund
to 100,000, said the chair of the RJS Memorial
Fund Committee, Melissa Doud. The committee is
actively working to raise the required amount of
money. We invite all of those who were touched by
Roberts life as well as all of those who are in
the scientific community and sponsor good
research to contribute to the endowment.
Donations in the form of a check can be
