Alexandra Barbee will continue her education at the Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine

by Billy Chandler

Our Emory & Henry seniors are preparing to graduate and change the world.

Alexandra Barbee, from Franklin, N.C., will graduate in May 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in Biology.

Emory & Henry has provided me a well-rounded basis for learning and future successes,” says Barbee. “Through my work in the biology department, I have had opportunities to participate in independent research, present at research proposal meetings, and work directly with professors. I feel confident in my abilities to be successful in future programs based on the experiences offered at E&H.”

While on campus, Barbee served asTreasurer of Tri Beta Biological Honor Society and was a member of the Blue Key Honor Society, Pre-Health Club and Pre-Veterinary and Animal Science Society. She also served as a Supplemental Instructor and a Lab Assistant.

“Dr. George Argyros has been influential in my learning and success at Emory & Henry,” says Barbee. “From class scheduling, research questions, and lab assistance, to letters of recommendation, advice for future education and more, Dr. A has been a key component to success within the program.”

After graduation, Barbee will be attending Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine to pursue her dreams of being a veterinarian.

Through my work in the biology department, I have had opportunities to participate in independent research, present at research proposal meetings, and work directly with professors. I feel confident in my abilities to be successful in future programs based on the experiences offered at E&H.
