The Meredith Avery Memorial Anthropology Fund was established in 2012 to honor Armstrong Atlantic State University student Meredith Avery, who was killed in a car accident in December 2011. Recognizing Meredith’s keen interest in diverse cultures, her adventurous spirit and curiosity, her sense of humor and her enjoyment of anthropological field trips, the Fund was established as a mechanism to enable students enrolled in Anthropology classes at Armstrong to participate in outside-the-classroom experiences. These interactive, field-based experiences teach anthropological and archaeological concepts, develop critical thinking and problem solving skills and offer students insights into how anthropology can be applied to solve real-world problems.
