The 8th annual College of Science Celebration of Excellence brought together faculty, staff, and students for a night of celebration and giving of scholarships, the latter funded by the College of Science Roundtable Advisory Board. Students also had the chance to sit and eat dinner with scholarship sponsors.
Two special scholarships were awarded during the evening. Haley Meade, a junior from Pound, Virginia, pursuing a major in Biochemistry and a minor in Chemistry, was awarded the Dean’s Roundtable Endowed Scholarship. Carl Wepking, a Blacksburg-based doctoral student in Biological Sciences, was awarded the Roundtable Make a Difference Scholarship for Graduate Study.
Of the evening, Science Dean Sally C. Morton said, “One of the privileges of serving as dean of the College of Science is meeting inspiring, hard-working students who share a passion for excellence in science, learning, discovery, and are intent on making our world a better place, and honoring the faculty who serve as their mentors.”
