Jess Barnes and Joshua Smith won awards in biology for their outstanding work in the field. Barnes was not too sure what Honors Convocation meant to non-seniors, but it meant a lot that their hard work was recognized.

Casey Carroll, Alyssa DeSanti, and Leah Hoard also won awards and were all very proud of their achievements. When asked about advice for an incoming freshmen, Carroll replied, “Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. As a freshman. everyone is on the same boat and you need to not be afraid to be that go-getter.”
