A New Discovery By Greenport High School Student Joe McInnis
When Joe began this study as an eighth-grader, Peconic Landing was one of the first to invite him in to speak. Joe is now a senior at Greenport High School, ranked first in his class. After four years, Joe McInnis and his mentor, Douglas Gregg, a retired Plum Island veterinary pathologist, will present a significant breakthrough that may explain the cause of and solution to Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Joe’s study recently beat out 500 other students to win first place at the New York State Science Fair (NYSSEF). He was also the youngest speaker ever to address the New York State Histotechnological Society’s annual conference. Welcome Joe back to Peconic Landing and hear about his new findings!
