In recognition of outstanding academic achievement, Caitlin Kowalski ’14 has been named the top student in the Biology Department for 2014.

A Biology major from Loudon, N.H., Caitlin has demonstrated a commitment to scholarship that exemplifies the habits of mind that Stonehill seeks to help students cultivate.

As a student, Caitlin has taken full advantage of the many opportunities that have been made available to her at Stonehill and has sought out opportunities of her own.
