sigma_zeta_icon169x270-1Beta Upsilon, Marygrove’s chapter of the national science and mathematics honor society Sigma Zeta, will be hosting an induction ceremony for new members on Saturday, June 12 at 10:00 a.m.  Marygrove formed the Beta Upsilon chapter in April 2009.

In the year since it was formed, Beta Upsilon students have accomplished much and Marygrove professors Dr. Don Rizzo and Dr. Mary Lynam, co-advisors for Beta Upsilon, are proud. “We’re excited,” said Rizzo. “Four of our students (Jay Biernat, Carla Sims, Lloyd Weishap and Semaj Wilson) presented their senior seminar research projects at the Sigma Zeta National Convention this past March at Campbellsville University in Campbellsville, Kentucky, which is quite an honor.”

Beta Upsilon students, who must have at least a 3.0 GPA in science and a 3.0 GPA overall, take membership seriously and are finding ways to promote the Sciences and help other Marygrove students. In addition to attending the national convention, Beta Upsilon members have held monthly meetings, tutored science students, held a fundraiser and hosted a video screening for Earth Day. And on June 12, as part of the Sr. Marie Cabrini luncheon, they are planting a Purple Flowering Plum Tree on Marygrove’s campus in memory of Ava Rodgers, Class of 2009, a fellow honor society member who was tragically killed later that year in a hit-and-run accident.

Additional Marygrove faculty members involved with Beta Upsilon are Dr. Jeanne Andreoli, Dr. Sally Welch and Dr. Jana Abolins.
