For the first time in its nearly 40-year history, the marine biology program of Goshen High School is joining forces with the marine biology department of Goshen College.
Having already left for the sunny Florida Keys this past Thursday, Goshen High School’s annual marine biology trip is currently several days under way.
Some big changes are in store for the team this year, however, not the least of which is the recently approved deal between Goshen High School and Goshen College allowing the high school students to use the college’s marine biology facility at Layton, fla. for their lectures and lab work.
In addition to the upgraded digs, the partnership between the two educational institutions also has some sentimental value for Carl Weaver, founder and longtime leader of the Goshen High School marine biology program. Weaver will be returning this year to the Florida resort where he first got his start all those years ago.
“I started this program in 1974, and we were able to stay at the Lime Tree Bay Resort that year because of the kindness and help of my two college professors, Frank Bishop and Jonathan Roth, the leaders of the Goshen College marine biology program at that time,” Weaver said. “It happened to be the same place Goshen College was using for their program, so they made the call and told those people to give us a chance, and that’s how I got my start down there.”
Weaver credits the influences of Bishop and Roth as the primary factor behind his choice to lead a marine biology program of his own.
“Those are the two people that really helped me launch my career at Goshen High School,” Weaver said. “I’m deeply indebted to them and to the college for this entire effort, starting from our beginning year up to this collaboration effort.”
