IB presents two Castor canadensis awards annually for outstanding service to the department. This year's recipients are David Maddison (faculty) and Katie Dziedzic (grad student). David is our Space Committee Chair. He has devoted countless hours of work sorting, organizing and cleaning spaces for our new faculty members. Katie was recognized for her leadership amongst her peers and her service to the department. She served as a Co-President of the IB graduate students, served on an IB search committee, and has TA'd Principles of Biology, Invertebrate Biology, and Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology labs. Congratulations, David and Katie! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.
