Monmouth College’s Gamma Pi chapter of Beta Beta Beta, the national biology honor society, inducted four new members earlier this month.

Inducted were junior Matthew Jefferson of Andalusia and sophomores Kyle Earman of Olympia Fields, Aimee Hodierne of Dahinda and Julie Samuelson of Chicago.

Nationally, Beta Beta Beta (also known as Tri-Beta) was founded in 1922 with the purpose of encouraging scholarly attainment in biology and to honor its members for superior academic records in the life sciences. MC’s Gamma Pi chapter has been in existence since 1946.

Tri-Beta also cultivates intellectual interest in the natural sciences and promotes a stronger appreciation of the value of biological study. It endeavors to extend the boundaries of knowledge of nature by encouraging new discoveries through scientific investigation and challenges undergraduates to begin research work and report their findings in Bios, the Tri-Beta journal.
