My name is Layura Henley, I am excited for the privilege to be part of the Boone Honors Program at Ferrum College. I’m from Wytheville, Virginia where I graduated from George Wythe High School with an Advanced Academic Diploma.

I am triple majoring in Pre-Professional Science, Health Sciences, and Biology with minors in Chemistry and Russian. Additionally, I am the President of Ferrum Greek Council, the Vice President of Tr-Beta Biological Honors Society, and the SGA Rep. for Lambda Sigma Sophomore Honors Society. I am also a member of the Honors Advisory Council, Minds in Medicine Club, and the Lion’s Branch Club. Outside of academics, I am also a middle Blocker/Right Side on the Ferrum College Women’s Volleyball team.

Once I have received my Bachelor’s Degree I plan to attend Medical school. I aspire to be a surgeon, hopefully specializing in Neuro.
