Chemical society receives award

BEAVER FALLS, Pa. –The American Chemical Society (ACS) Student Affiliates chapter at Geneva College has been selected to receive an Honorable Mention award for its chapter conducted during the 2005-06 academic year. In addition to being recognized by their peers and ACS members, this award brings a note of accomplishment in Chemical & Engineering News, the Society’s official national newsmagazine, and in Chemistry, the Student Affiliates magazine. The award winning chapters will be honored at the 233rd ACS National Meeting in Chicago, IL on Sunday, March 25, 2007.

Every ACS chapter is required to submit an annual report of its activities. Based on the review of these reports, chapters are selected by the Society Committee on Education for recognition as Outstanding, Commendable, or Honorable Mention chapters. For the 2005-06 academic year, 34 outstanding; 56 commendable; and 75 honorable mention awards will be presented.

Professor Melinda Stevens is the faculty advisor of Geneva’s ACS chapter. Few faculty members are willing to make the great commitment of time and energy that a successful chapter requires of its advisors. Professor Stephen’s efforts certainly represent the best in undergraduate science education and mentoring around the country.

The Society’s responsibilities include the pre-professional development of undergraduate students in the chemical sciences. One way the Society accomplishes this task is by offering undergraduate students majoring in chemistry or a related science the opportunity to enroll in the ACS Student Affiliates (SA) program. The SA program has a current enrollment of more than 10,000 students and offers them the support, privileges, and benefits of the largest scientific professional society in the world.
