Three valued supporters of NCSE recently were honored.

Francisco Ayala, the Donald Bren Professor of Biological Sciences in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine, was named a University Professor by the Regents of the University of California, a rank that only 33 other faculty members in the University of California system have ever attained.
