  • Kethelyne BeauvaisKethelyne Beauvais ’15 is a biology and French major who loves the research process. She presented her SURF research at the American Society of Andrology’s 38th Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas. “I learned several new lab procedures, including extracting DNA, using my own gel and buffers for DNA gel electrophoresis, understanding the process of genotyping and polymerase chain reactions, and grasping the main concepts and procedures of many different scientific papers,” says Beauvais of her project. “Gaining all of these skills in just a couple of months is priceless.” These are skills that Beauvais will put to good use in medical school.

Erne Colin“It is a great honor to be accepted into the Preferred Applicant Track program at the VCU School of Medicine,” says Erne, a biology major and chemistry minor. “I am proud to represent R-MC.” Erne plans to become an orthopedic surgeon. “I was fortunate to overcome my own orthopedic disability as a child and I want to pursue orthopedics as a profession so that I can give my patients the same care and compassion that I received.”  A certified EMT, he also plans to continue serving the community as a volunteer EMT. “R-MC has excellent early-acceptance programs and an efficient pre-med system. The early acceptance programs act as generous rewards that encourage students to excel in the classroom starting the first day of freshman year,” says Erne. “Staff from The Edge work with students to construct an individualized program specific to each student. The staff is also well-versed in the medical school interview and application process. Randolph-Macon provides an excellent foundation for hard-working pre-med students who want to pursue a career in healthcare.”
