CONWAY, Ark. (March 11, 2014) – Hendrix seniors Kaleb Wolfe from Medina, Tenn., and Chelsea Woods from Springdale, Ark., are the first Hendrix students to be inducted into Chi Omega Lambda, the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)’s National Honor Society.

Chi Omega Lambda recognizes exceptional undergraduate juniors and seniors for their scholarly attainment, research accomplishments, and outreach activities in the molecular life sciences.

Thirty-seven students from across the country were inducted into Chi Omega Lambda this year.

“Kaleb and Chelsea are outstanding students and researchers and they each put together a compelling application which resulted in their admission to the Honor Society,” said Hendrix biology professor Dr. Rick Murray, chair of the biochemistry and molecular biology program.
