Natural Science Hall of Fame Members

Southwestern College alumni who have made significant achievements in the sciences are recognized annually in the Natural Science Hall of Fame.  Since the inaugural year of 2001, many notable Moundbuilders have been honored by having their names placed in this Hall of Fame.  The actual display is located in the north end of Beech Science Center on the Southwestern College main campus.
