Truman American Chemical Society Named Outstanding Chapter

Truman’s student chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS) was honored as an Outstanding Chapter for the 2008-09 academic year.

This is the fifth time since 2004 that the chapter has been honored by the national organization and the third time they have received the highest award offered by ACS.

Truman’s ACS students were also honored for their dedication to the environment by the Green Chemistry Student Chapter Award. Both of these awards recognize the incredible work of ACS students throughout the past year, including their outreach activities to the community, National Chemistry Week and the annual Musical Demo Show.

Truman’s ACS presidents for the 2008-09 academic year were Dmitriy Chernookiy and Josh Blechle.

The students, advised by Barbara Kramer, associate professor of chemistry, will travel to the National ACS meeting in San Francisco in the spring to receive the awards.
