  • Alumni Spotlight: Kenadi Maupin 2018

  • RNA and Other Things

    When Dr. Mike Cotugno explained to me how the Moderna vaccine works, my eyes glazed over, a humanist brain unable to grasp the intricacies of the science that will be our deliverance. As an ex-Marine Dr. Mike is waging war against COVID on a number of fronts conducting studies on vaccines through an outfit called Benchmark Research. And like a good teacher he inspired me to do my homework, and my crude understanding is thus: the acid RNA, which comprises the basic material of the major vaccines in the trial is akin to the Greek god Hermes the messenger. Ribonucleic acid carries instructions to cells on how to produce proteins, and in the case of a vaccine, the RNA directs cells to fabricate a protein found on the surface of COVID 19. The body reacts by going into protection mode, producing antibodies to fight what it perceives as an invasive substance. Immunity results from what is essentially a parlor trick played on the body.
  • Alumni Spotlight: Blair Price 2010

    Blair Price was recently featured in Black Southern Belle. In her own words, "I want people to experience my voice through my home, and for me, the biggest part of that is referencing and celebrating my past."
  • Alumni Spotlight: Kevin McKee 2016

    As a mechanical engineering major at Louisiana Tech, Kevin McKee's facility protection tool, a jack slot cover for ICBM missile silo sites, was picked up by the US Air Force's Global Strike Command. Kevin's mother writes, "Country Day's unique approach to education created a foundation that has challenged, complemented, and enhanced his passion for all things mechanical."
