UMF Prof Summits Everest

UMF nutrition professor John Bagnulo summited Mount Everest on Wednesday—his 36th birthday—though his climbing partner, Bill Yeo of Durham, did not. EverestNews.com has the details.
The two Mainers planned to do some field work during the climb.

Yeo was collecting soil samples that were to be tested at the University of Southern Maine for metal deposits from industrial smokestacks in China; Bagnulo was studying the use of natural supplements for high-altitude climbers. [Link]

I salute both of these hearty Mainuhs'. I'm bummed about Yeo, a fellow Durhamite, not making it to the summit.

Two citizens from the PTS that we all can be proud of.
