Saba at Westminster Abbey during the Brock Scholars 2013 Cultural Trip

Saba Munir is a senior from Girls' Preparatory School in Chattanooga, TN, majoring in biology: preprofessional with minors in chemistry and political science. 

Saba was elected to the Brock Scholars Council starting in her freshman year, serving as co-chair of the Council's Academic and Cultural Affairs Committee during both her freshman and sophomore years, and during her junior year serving as Council President.  She represented UTC at the Southern Regional Honors Council Conference in Savannah in 2013, where she was a student presenter on Honors Student Leadership, and where she was elected as the student representative to the Executive Board of the Southern Regional Honors Council for the 2014-15 academic year.

Saba has also been active throughout her undergraduate career with UTC student organizations outside the Brock Scholars, including UTC's Habitat for Humanity chapter, Beta Beta Beta National Biological Honor Society and Mortar Board Senior National Honor Society.  She has served as a TA for general chemistry lab and a lab tech for microbiology.  Her many contributions to campus life and her outstanding scholarly achievements earned her the Charles M. Reneissen Leadership Scholarship Award in spring 2014.

Saba expanded her academic and personal experiences even more during summer 2014 by enrolling in a six-week intensive Arabic language program in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.  

Now that she's back at UTC, her senior year promises to be even busier: she has become a Cultural Ambassador for UTC's Office of International and Exchange Programs, she will continue as a lab tech in microbiology, in addition to working as a physical therapy tech at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital, and conducting research for her senior honors thesis in biology. 

After graduating in May, Saba plans to enroll in medical school or a graduate program in public health.
