The Faces of Resiliency video series highlights how communities are increasing their resilience to sea level rise, storm surge and flooding. The series, developed by Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant at the University of Georgia, features interviews with coastal residents and researchers who share stories of adapting to coastal hazards through community engagement and collaboration with scientists, nonprofits, or government agencies. The video "Conserving Georgia's Salt Water Marshes" features Joel Kostka, professor and associate chair of Research in the School of Biological Sciences, highlighting his studies on helping salt water marshes stabilize shorelines while providing space for marshes to migrate in the future.

One name was heard repeatedly during Georgia Tech’s commencement ceremony Saturday. It’s Kashlan — as in Adam, Rommi and Zane Kashlan. The fraternal triplets, who will turn 19 later in May, graduated from the College of Sciences. Three years ago, they shared valedictorian honors from West Forsyth High School. Now, they’re graduating from college a year early, each with a B.S. in Neuroscience. “They’ve earned every bit of it,” their father, Dean Kashlan, said of their success. He graduated from Georgia Tech in 1985. (This story was also covered on 11Alive News.)
