Honored Graduating Student: Benton Tullis (PDBio)
When COVID-19 canceled their marathon, Benton and Madeleine Tullis (‘21) decided to run their own. They woke up at 5:30 a.m., made their own medals out of wood, and invited family and friends to cheer them on as they crossed the “finish line” at Utah Lake. Their love of adventure and strong ability to problem-solve will aid them as Benton heads off to medical school in the fall.
