Millard, a former student in the Advanced Math/Science Research (AMSR) program at Berkshire, was selected as a Regeneron STS semifinalist his senior year and studied under Dr. April Burch. He credits the program with inspiring him to continue scientific research at Holy Cross where he’s a biology major.

Upon hearing the news, Dr. Burch shared, “One of things I enjoy most about Berkshire is the opportunity to work with and inspire students at the beginning of their science career. Charlie took full advantage of the AMSR program and the connections that were made to secure an incredible legacy for himself on campus and jumpstart his research career. I am so proud that he has continued to work hard and his hard work is paying off.”
