Among the societys 1,200-plus members and 20 honorary members are prominent leaders in medicine, academe, business, politics and the arts.

BHS Induction Ceremony: March 30

The Beehive Honor Society Induction Ceremony took place March 30 at the University of Utah Alumni House. The 16 inductees were joined by faculty, family, friends, previous Beehive Honor Society inductees—including University of Utah President David Pershing. After a lovely reception, guests gathered to hear Kevin Pearson, LDS General Authority and former CEO of Ingenix, talk about the importance of education and relationships, as well as the significance of discovering your passion.

"Passionate people make things happen," Pearson said.

Each inductee was presented with a certificate, and their notable accomplishments were acknowledged. We warmly welcome the Beehive Honor Society Class of 2016 and look forward to celebrating their future successes!
