Grand Valley State University held their graduation ceremony on April 25th in downtown Grand Rapids and some of their highest honors went to R-P Alumni! Emily Andrews, Courtney Cave, and Stephanyu Zahl were all awarded Biomedical Sciences Graduates of Distinction. This was a departmental award from their major program. Each candidate had to be nominated by a professor and then submit a resumé and cover letter detailing their time at Grand Valley, all that they’ve gained, and how they’ve given back to the GV community with their time there. With that, the BMS board evaluated each application and made the decision. In total, there were 35 selected Graduates of Distinction out of 1,300 plus students in their major.

It sure is a point of pride to see Rocket Alumni being recognized for their continued academic excellence.
