“Finally after all his hard work, the day has come he has completed his milestone of education,” his mother, Andrea Everett of Hinesville, said.
His father is Ernest Everett III.
The graduate’s dissertation was “Fabrication and Characterization of a Composite Fibrous Construct with Photocatalytic Activity and Physical Adsorption Capabilities for Water Treatment Applications.”
Last summer Everett was selected to partake in a graduate fellow program with General Electric Global Research Center in Niskayuna, NY. Where he collaborated with center scientists and other researchers from the University of Alabama, including its Huntsville campus.
His doctoral hooding and commencement was Dec. 16 at Alys Robinson Stephens Performing Arts Center.
The 2008 Bradwell Institute graduate followed his brother, Ernest Everett IV, to Morehouse College in Atlanta, where he earned a bachelor’s of science in physics. He earned his master’s in materials engineering at the UAB.
During articulation, he won a National Science Foundation’s Established Program to Simulate Competitive Research Scholarship for Ph.D. research.
“We are very proud of his accomplishments,” his mother said.
