“Her lab is always open to all the students whether they are undergraduates, Masters level student, high school students,” said Crenshaw.

For Matthews, it’s a dream come true.

“Being recruited to Alabama State University has been one of the greatest joys in my career at this point. It is extreme pleasure to mentor students and let them go on to hire realms of academic study and particularly it’s my heart’s desire to train women in minority students who look like me,” said Matthews.
