National Biological Honor Society Installation Held at Ferrum College
The National Biological Honor Society Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta) installed local chapter Beta Iota Omega at Ferrum College in spring 2013. The 33 individuals inducted into the Society during the inaugural ceremony, held in April 2013, included 26 current undergraduates majoring in either biology or pre-professional science, two alumni who were influential in getting the chapter up and going, and five of the College’s professors.
“We are very excited to be awarded a chapter from TriBeta. This is an excellent opportunity for our students to be part of both a local and national community dedicated to furthering biological knowledge and research,” said local chapter faculty advisor Dr. Michaela Gazdik, program coordinator of biology and assistant professor of molecular biology. “We plan to have a vibrant and active chapter on campus and I look forward to the activities that TriBeta will host in the future.”
