San Xavier Kiwanis -

Student of The Month : Riana Delia Canedo

The San Xavier Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. One way the San Xavier Kiwanis club helps to serve the children in the Tucson Community is through our Student of The Month program. One of the schools selected to receive recognition is Tucson High Magnet School. We can help showcase our excellent program at Tucson High and help to bring honor to our deserving students. The focus of our student of the Month program is on students who have faced personal, physical, or academic challenges and are improving and succeeding as they overcome their obstacles.

Congratulations Riana!

THMS students and Fungal Microbiology

In October 2011, the National Geographic BioBlitz was held in Saguaro National Park. This was an event that drew scientists from around the country to identify and catalog as many species as possible in Saguaro National Parks East and West. THMS Honors Research Methods students participated in the BioBlitz, screening plants for fungi that reside within their leaves and twigs. Students worked with researchers in the lab of Professor Betsy Arnold (Plant Sciences Department at the University of Arizona). In the spring of 2012, Honors Biology classes and Biotech 1,2 classes conducted similar surveys of endophytic fungi in Saguaro National Park West with the Arnold lab. The publication in Fungal Microbiology includes contributions made by around 120 THMS students. We are so excited and honored to have been part of this work!
