BAHS Faculty Celebrate Retirement

        Its a bitter sweet day as we say goodbye to some of our favorite faculty members. With COVID restrictions easing, faculty members of the department celebrated the retirement of their colleagues this year and last, with an outdoor lunch.       In the Spring of 2020, we said goodbye to Dr. Barry Nolt and Dr. George Chamuris, and this spring we say so long to Dr. Joseph Ardizzi, Dr. Judy Kipe-Nolt, and Dr. Cynthia Surmacz. While they will be missed daily by students and fellow faculty, we are so excited they get to enjoy their next chapter!         Thank you so much for all your hard work as members of the BAHS department. You will always be part of our BU family!  

Alumni Update: Christopher Duff B.S. '20

       Christopher Duff, a 2020 BAHS Grad in the Ecology, Conservation, and Field Biology Program has recently secured a position in the Plant Pathology Division of the PA department of Agriculture.       Apparently he is crossing over to the dark side, molecular biology that is. Chris says he is excited to use the knowledge he gained at Bloom to identify exotic plant pathogens in his new position.           Now we know who to call when the plants in the greenhouse get sick!  Congratulations Chris, We are so happy you are part of our BU Family!   👏 🙌
