Nomination Criteria

Todd Prior
Integrative Neuromuscular Biology Laboratory, Kinesiology

Todd has been a long standing member of the DBAC JHSC and takes time to train each incoming student on basic safety measures while making sure they are aware of the necessary safety facilities.  Todd goes the extra mile by researching and discussing the use of alternative chemicals that are safer yet equally effective.
