Ribbon-cutting ceremonies are standard practice for new buildings. Because the Mars Center for Science and Technology is anything but ordinary, it deserved something a bit more special. The solution: a 60-foot-long strand of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) that Life Trustee Adrienne Bevis Mars ’56 and her husband, John, separated, with some help from President Ronald A. Crutcher and members of the college’s Board of Trustees.
