Awarding the University medal. As you may know, commencement is in full swing at UC Davis. This morning at the College of Biological Sciences ceremony, Larissa Miyachi, a biochemistry and molecular biology major, received the highest honor awarded to the top graduating senior – the 2012 University Medal. Larissa is a remarkable young woman who is destined for medical school. Today, she joins a group of Aggies in a class all of their own. I invite you to read more about her and other former medalists, and join me in congratulating Larissa for all of her accomplishments!
