Blue’s nominator wrote, “Under her mentorship, I learned about how research is conducted at Florida State University, the importance of an IRB (Institutional Review Board), and why there should be oversight of research projects.” The nominator also described how Blue instilled the importance of a good work ethic, along with the training and knowledge they learned on the job. They also said Blue has a “heart of gold” and working with her was a “joy that will never be forgotten.”
