Harmon, the son of Marlin and Nonie Harmon of Bountiful, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Utah in 2006.
He and his wife, Jennifer, are the parents of two children. He plans to enter the radiology program at O’Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens, Ohio. While at WVSOM, Harmon received an anatomy award as well.
Law student accepted to program
BOUNTIFUL — After graduating from the University of Mississippi School of Law, Michael L. Telford of Bountiful has been accepted into the graduate tax law program at NYU.
While all areas of law require at least a three-year Juris Doctorate (JD) degree, a number of specialty fields – including tax – require an additional year of study for a Masters of Law (LL.M.) degree.
Seven graduates, nearly 5 percent of Mississippi’s graduating class, were accepted to top-ranked programs. Tax law professor Karen Green said she’s never seen such a concentration of talent and dedication to the profession as with this year’s graduates.
