Thanks to a Popular Teacher, Bishop Dunne Students Pursue Studies in Physics

Carol Mayo

physics_2016Bishop Dunne has a strong program in the physical sciences, as physics teacher Mr. Van Rusuriye can attest. Three of his graduating seniors this year plan to major in physics in college.

Graduate Jonathan Cuevas will study physics at the University of North Texas this fall. 2016 graduate Christian Mullin will attend the University of Maryland to study physics. Maryland has one of the best physics education research programs in the nation. Christian visited the university and met a friend of Mr. Rusuriye’s who is in charge of that program. Class of 2016 Valedictorian Jane Kelleher plans to be a theoretical physicist and will study physics at the University of Chicago, and later seek a doctoral degree.

Several recent Bishop Dunne graduates have also elected to study physics. Sophia Rana (2015) is majoring in physics at Loyola University, Chicago. Dan Le (2015) is studying math and physics at Stephen F. Austin State University, and Ryan Lane (2014) is studying physics at Dartmouth College
