Mrs. McGarvin spoke to Dr. Sayarath's Genetics and Biotechnology classes about her experiences as a gestational surrogate. She explained the process, needs, and bioethics behind this practice. Surrogacy utilizes in vitro fertilization for assisted reproduction to help people grow their families when they do not have the ability to carry a pregnancy of their own.

Mr. Bugbee's Intro to Construction Technology class installed additional storage shelves in Christensen Dorm.
