The Central Baptist College Math and Science Department recognized three students for their academic excellence by awarding them with white coats in a ceremony on Nov. 9.
The three students recognized were Hattie Horton, Kassidy Irwin and Michaela Wann.
These students achieved academic excellence in challenging courses at CBC and for the first time in the seven-year history of the ceremony, all of the awardees were juniors.
The students were charged to live out the mission of CBC by Joshua Kwekel, the associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, after they graduate.
Horton and Irwin are both pursuing medical school after graduation while Wann has intentions of joining the U.S. Air Force upon graduating.
The ceremony was attended by members of faculty and staff as well as five inductees into the white coat society from last year.
