Dr. Thomas has surpassed what it means to teach with excellence. In the classroom, she strives to provide students with content in a manner that is both engaging and easy to understand. She has pioneered many courses, including BioInquiry and Foundations of Environmental Science that include curriculums designed to adequately prepare first-year students with the skills essential to a career in science.
Shannon is a student, a scholar and a selfless person.
Andrew has worked in the Thomas lab in a research capacity since his freshman year. First as a volunteer assistant on other projects, then eventually co-developing projects to finally, developing his own novel research based on his interests in the environment, dragonflies and aquatic systems.
Congratulations to the Biology Honors Students for their hard work. Extra applause goes to Arden LaGrone and Julia Racine in receiving awards for their research. (L-R: Kyle Cleveland, Arden LaGrone, Julia Racine, Robert Mipro, Kayla Noto and Kristen Williams.)
