Noteworthy: Wagner, a professor of physics at Grove City College, was elected to a two-year term as national president of the Society of Physics Students. She has been involved with the organization since she was a college sophomore when a classmate revived the chapter at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va. Wagner has advised the Grove City College chapter since her arrival in 2001.

Age: 43

Residence: Grove City

Background: Before joining Grove City's faculty, Wagner taught physics for a year at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas, followed by three years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., where she revived the inactive SPS chapter.

Education: Wagner received Bachelor of Science degrees in physics and English from William & Mary in 1991. In 1994 she obtained a master's degree in theoretical particle physics from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, where she also earned a doctorate in theoretical particle physics in 1997.

Quote: “It's really exciting to be able to help guide the organization. The best part is the people you get to work with because everyone is so committed to improving the experience of undergraduate physics majors.”
