Olga Kildesheva (REU Mentor 2017) and Isiah Spears, the College First student she mentored, published an article "The College First Program Opens Doors to New Possibilities in Plant Conservation and Ecological Restoration" on the International Network for Seed-Based Restoration website (10 October 2017). The article  discusses the impact the College First students have on the future of plant conservation research as well as the important role that mentor plays in helping to shape their future. Participants in the REU Program mentor Chicago Public High School students who participate in the Chicago Botanic Garden College First Program.
