Lissa (Grashorn) Diaz '07

Darrian Arch ’18 graduated from Bethel with a major in Biology and plans to attend medical school to eventually become an organ transplant surgeon. At Bethel, she served as the cadaver dissection intern and teaching assistant for human anatomy. In October 2017, during her senior year, she was crowned Miss Indiana USA 2018. Her platform was organ donation, stemming from her mother’s diagnosis of renal failure and need for transplant. As Miss Indiana, she partnered with the Indiana Donor Network as a spokesperson and advocate for organ donation. In May 2018, she competed in the Miss USA pageant in Louisiana. 

Since graduation, Arch has continued her education at Liberty University, where she's pursuing a master's in molecular medicine to enhance her resume for medical school. She also works as a microbiologist at Don Levy Laboratories in Crown Point, Ind.
