Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Chemistry Program

Thomas, Chemistry Major

Name: Thomas Royals, Alumnus
Major: Chemistry
Minor: Mathematics
Hometown: Hattiesburg, MS
Fact: I was a professional baseball player for one week in the Detroit Tigers organization.

I chose to come to Belhaven because... I knew Belhaven's science department was strong. Belhaven's academic prestige lured me, and Coach Hill Denson provided me with a baseball scholarship. Belhaven was my third college to attend, but I finally got it right.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... is my relationship with my best bud Brian Kirby. Brian and I played baseball together, studied together, and lived together. Though we went separate ways after graduation, he and I speak nearly every day. He'll be in my wedding one day and I'm in his wedding this summer! I'd have never met Brian had I not attended Belhaven.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I am fulfilling my longtime dream of becoming a physician. Belhaven University and the faculty prepared me to matriculate in to medical school in August of 2009. I'm extremely excited and can't thank Dr. Berryhill, Dr. Kelly, and Dr. Reese enough. Those professors have been a blessing and amazingly helpful in my pursuit for medical school.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Surprising
