Steve Lehner

Native to North Dakota I have lived in Tennessee since 1986. I graduated cum laude from Belmont College in 1990 with a bachelors degree in music (composition and arranging emphasis). After becoming dissatisfied with the lifestyle of a traveling musician, I learned to tune pianos in 1992 and still maintain a piano tuning business. However piano tuning was not challenging enough, and, realizing my love for science, I began pursuing a degree in geology at MTSU in 1999.

Having just completed field camp at the Black Hills Natural Sciences Field Station near Beulah Wyoming, which is run by the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, I am setting my sights on grad school. With only two more semesters to complete at MTSU, I am considering graduate studies at Vanderbilt University and am engaged in studying the ongoing research taking place there. The work on plate tectonics, quaternary geology and low temperature geochemistry are all especially appealing to me at this point.
