Ever since she was a young girl, Samantha Lawrence knew she would be involved in the sciences. In fifth grade, her science teacher decided to have the class participate in a science fair. Having helped her parents build their home in Morgan, she had always wondered why nails turned orange in exposed stud walls, so she decided to investigate that phenomenon for her science fair project.  Through that project she discovered corrosion and has been fascinated by the processes and mitigation of corrosion from then on.  Samantha continued to nurture these interests and eventually graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at Colorado School of Mines. She is currently a candidate for a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at Washington State University.
