Damon will be graduating this year and moving on to study medicine at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. He sums up his experiences working in the library as follows:
"Coming to UW-Eau Claire was the logical step towards continuing on with my goal of becoming a medical doctor. Upon arriving on campus my first year, I quickly set out to find employment so that I would be able to afford my education. Within the first few weeks, I was offered and accepted employment at an on campus cafeteria and at the McIntyre Library.
My first semester of college was a hectic time, balancing twenty credits, finishing a needlework tapestry piece for each of my grandmothers, and working 21 hours a week at my two jobs. It was during this time that I planned out the rest of my college courses and determined that I could graduate in three years with a chemistry degree if I took a considerable amount of credits each semester and continued to work hard.
This May I will be graduating after only three years with an A.C.S. Comprehensive Chemistry degree, a 3.98 GPA, two publications in respected scientific journals for biochemistry research I have done while an undergraduate, and an acceptance letter to the UW Medical School in Madison. Additionally, I had the honor of being the 2005-2006 “College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Student.” I will always look back on (most) of my college career with fond memories, especially at my time spent working the McIntyre Library."
