Congratulations to the American Chemical Society (ACS) Club for winning not one, but two, awards this year!  The club won Outstanding Club of 2015.  This award "recognizes an organization that has contributed to the Stevenson Community through excellence in meeting the four foundations of civic engagement, education, personal development, and collaborative leadership."  The club was also awarded the Best Educational Program for the Chemistry Magic Show.  This award “salutes a program connected with the mission of the organization to educate the Stevenson University community on a particular topic.”  What a great end to such a fun and successful year!

The picture above was taken at the end of year lunch.  Club officers, Shelby Litz and Michele Collingsworth, are holding the plaques for the awards.

On the last day of classes, ACS Club members celebrated the club’s outstanding year with a taco bar.  Spending time with friends was a great break before starting to study for finals!

Biochemistry Junior, Ginell McLean, was selected to participate in the 2015 Minority Undergraduate Student Internship Program (MUSIP) at the Edgewood Chemical Biogical Center.  This summer, Ginell will work with a mentor to conduct science and engineering research.  She will present the results of her research during the last week of the program.  Ginell will also present her research results to the SU community since she is using this research experience as part of her Capstone Research course.  

Dr. Michelle Ivey was awarded an SU Faculty Development Research Grant at the recent Faculty Recognition Dinner.  Dr. Ivey plans to use the award to continue her ongoing project- writing a book, with co-author Jason Sonnenberg, on integrating computational chemistry into an undergraduate curriculum.  Dr. Ivey presented her ideas and some of the experiments at the ACS meeting in Denver in March.  During the course of this project, Dr. Ivey has included students in testing the experiments and improving them.  

Chemistry junior, Domique Williams, shared his experience this semester in Integrative Lab in Biochemistry taught by Dr. Tim Dwyer.  This course introduced Dom to working independently in the lab setting.  Dom reported that he is so much more confident in the lab setting as a result of this course!  He truly enjoys all aspects of working in a lab- planning, preparing, completing experiments, and interpreting and communicating results.  He plans to use his skills, excitement, and confidence when he participates in his senior Capstone experience during the summer.
