Biology students appreciate support from alumnus Norbert Thompson12/12/2019
Norbert Thompson, ’51, recently continued his support of students in UA’s Department of Biology. His gifts help the Department of Biology’s Tiered Mentoring Program, as well as the Norbert Thompson Biology Undergraduate Research Symposium. He has also previously supported students by giving to the Making a Difference Moving Forward Scholarship Fund. Norbert was recently honored by his hometown of Barberton on its Walk of Fame for his contributions to the scientific and medical communities.
Norbert’s generous gifts have helped several UA students complete undergraduate degrees. Dr. Stephen Weeks, chair of the Department of Biology said of Norbert: “His funding has allowed us to set up a vigorous research environment for our most talented undergraduate students. I know they appreciate the opportunities he has provided them.”
