The American Chemical Society (ACS) has selected Hiram’s student chapter to receive a Commendable Award for the 2009-2010 academic year.
“Carol Shreiner, faculty advisor of the chapter,” says Joseph Francisco, ACS president, in a correspondence announcing the award, “deserves special commendation. Few faculty members are willing to make the great commitment of time and energy that a successful chapter requires. Professor Shreiner’s efforts certainly represent the best in undergraduate science education and mentoring around the country.”
Lists of award-winning chapters will be published in “Chemical & Engineering News” and in “inchemistry,” the student member magazine. Winning chapters will also be honored at the 241st ACS National Meeting in Anaheim, Calif., on March 27, 2011.
