Biology students honored at University Convocation

This past Saturday three students from the Department of Biology/Toxicology were recognized as our outstanding majors at Ashland University's annual honors convocation. Daphne Guinn (Toxicology) was presented the University award for outstanding Biology Senior, Charlie Davis (Biology) for outstanding Biology Junior and Lindsey Knapp (Biology) for outstanding Biology Sophomore.

After graduation this Spring Daphne will be entering the Integrated Biomedical Science Program at the Ohio State University where she will earn a PhD in Biomedical Research investigating the biology of human disease.  Lindsey will be spending this summer in the National Science Foundation funded undergraduate research program at Johns Hopkins University.

The 28 members of the Department's Tri-Beta Biology Honors Society were also recognized at the convocation, as well as the Department's two College of Arts and Sciences Scholars (Amy Drossman and Lindsey Knapp), ten University honors students and one Ashbrook scholar (Phillip Wages).

The Department of Biology/Toxicology will be awarding its senior scholarship and research awards, and announcing the recipients of departmental scholarships, at the annual end-of-the-year Biology picnic during the last week of classes.  Stay tuned for those announcements.
