Marilyn Kelly-Cavotta has joined Moravian College as our new director of veteran and military affairs. In this role, she will help smooth the transition for veterans into the college experience, guide students through the tangled web of accessing the educational benefits offered through the GI Bill, and reach out to veterans in the Lehigh Valley who have not taken advantage of their benefits to advance their education. Moravian’s student community includes 26 veterans, 16 students from military families, and 9 who are enrolled in ROTC. Inside Moravian sat down with Kelly-Covatta to talk about her background and the goals she has in this new role.

This summer, five Moravian College students—myself included—had the opportunity to collaborate on the Merck Summer Research Team. The Merck and Moravian College Collaborative Program was created to expose students to real-world projects merging health and information technology. The program provides a unique opportunity for students to experience client relationships, new technologies, and applicable projects, all of which are vital to being career ready.

My invitation to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI) marked the initiation of a collaboration between myself and Prof. Zvi Hayouka, an assistant professor at the HUJI campus in Rehovot, Israel. After meeting at a conference in 2014, we found we both have a mutual interest in studying the chemical basis for cell-to-cell signaling in bacteria. In particular, we had both been researching a cell-density dependent means of chemical communication called quorum sensing in the bacteria Bacillus cereus. After starting my position at Moravian, I invited Zvi to give a talk at the college in 2017. He then invited me to come to the HUJI this summer to collaborate on developing new molecules to modulate quorum sensing in B.cereus.

Colleen Marsh ’08 is a local Girl Scout leader and Moravian’s IT project manager. Nick Laird is Moravian’s Mac systems administrator. Together they are codirectors of Moravian College’s CodeHOUNDS Camp, a weeklong camp where kids in grades 5 through 7 learn coding with Swift—a programming language developed by Apple. Marsh’s roles sparked the idea of a camp session exclusively for Girl Scouts. To make the camp affordable, Marsh worked with the college advancement team to secure funding, and fellow alumni Nick ’13 and Brittany ’12 Clingan came forward with a generous gift matched by Nick’s employer, Microsoft, that made CodeHOUNDS Camp possible for 22 Junior Girl Scouts.
