Tom was passionate about teaching students both in the classroom and in his research lab. This passion and devotion made him a beloved faculty member with students. To honor his commitment to students, the Biology Department is establishing funds for a needs-based scholarship for a Biology student who has a serious interest in biology, is working hard, and making good progress toward their studies.
Donations to the fund in honor of Tom's memory can be made in two ways, making sure they specifically designate their donation to the Tom Knight Biology Scholarship:
