First NABT Biology Club Book Scholarship

We at East Chapel Hill High School in North Carolina are delighted to announce that Alexandru (Alex) Bacanu won the NABT Book Scholarship. Last Wednesday, May 27, George Ros from Carolina Biological came out and presented the beautiful plaque to Alex at a big senior awards ceremony. Alex was very grateful! He can definitely use the money for his texts at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he will be studying biology and chemistry in the fall. Alex has been integral to our Science Club. He has won numerous awards in the Science Olympiad Competition, starting in his freshman year when he was our "Don't Bug Me" expert and went to the National Science Olympiad Competition as one of only 2 freshmen on the team. He has always been a great supporter of the younger members and has done a great job tutoring and advising within our Club. He has been the leader of the Biology Club within our larger Science Club. We thank George Sellers for starting this wonderful NABT Biology Club project and we thank Carolina Biological and NABT for their generous support. - Judy Jones, advisor
