Most people don’t stop to ponder the lowly dung beetle, but Gardner-Webb University graduate Matt Jones (’09) has spent the last five years collecting and observing these little creatures. It’s a dirty job that only a serious scientist could enjoy, but his research on nature’s “cleanup crew” has earned him a prestigious Fulbright Award to study the introduction of dung beetles in New Zealand. “Receiving a Fulbright Fellowship means so much to me, because it’s such a competitive fellowship program,” Jones reflected.
