Congratulations to CMB student, Aicha Quamine!

Five outstanding scholars at UW–Madison joined the national Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society at an induction ceremony held on March 9.

The Bouchet Society commemorates the first person of African heritage to earn a PhD in the United States. Edward A. Bouchet earned a PhD in Physics from Yale University in 1876. Since then, the Bouchet Society has continued to uphold Dr. Bouchet’s legacy.
