Recently, I received three letters from 4th graders at Walnut Grove Elementary School in Vancouver, Washington. They wrote that they are avid sport fans, and each stated their interest in WSU. Their enthusiasm is infectious, and I am hoping that they will one day take some classes in our school and even become School of Molecular Biosciences majors. Maybe they can follow in the footsteps of our featured alumna, Dr. Gay Lynn Clyde. She earned a degree in microbiology and also received her doctorate in veterinary medicine from WSU. Dr. Clyde is a great role model not only for our current crop of undergraduates, but also for our future students, including Rahil, Ford, and Aiden, loyal WSU supporters in Vancouver.
