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.
