Adam Feist made rubber one summer in Lincoln, Nebraska and this experience led him to a PhD in bioengineering at UCSD. Along the way he won the 2007 Woolley Leadership Award. Click on the image below and listen to his story.
I found Adam's story especially interesting because it involves the Goodyear rubber plant in Lincoln, Nebraska. Like Adam, I also went to the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. A woman who I did several calculus group projects with at UNL worked full time at the rubber plant Adam worked at. She had burns all over her arms and hands to show for it...and such a great attitude about life's challenges. In fact, the named our calculus group "Positive Attitudes."
