Students and faculty gathered for the last club meeting of the semester.  There was good food (Terri's Cafe and Rita's) and Chemistry Jeopardy!  A great time was had by all.  Special thanks to the outgoing officers for a phenomenal year!

Congratulations to biochemistry freshman, Sehlah Butt, who is very proud to have just become a United States citizen!  Here's her story:

I was born in Pakistan and then moved to Saudi Arabia with my parents and little sister. In 2001, my family and I moved to America for a free and great education and opportunities you won't find anywhere else. Fifteen years later, on April 8th 2016, I became a United States citizen. It was such a memorable day and it is an honor to live in such a diverse and growing nation. 

Congratulations to chemistry senior, Malik Naanaa, on receiving the Maryland Section ACS Student Award for Stevenson University. Malik was chosen for this honor because of excellence in academics and his exemplary service as president of the ACS Club.  Malik received his award at the March Maryland Section ACS meeting and faculty members, Mrs. Diane Payne, Dr. Sara Narayan and Dr. Ellen Roskes, were there in Malik's support.  

Students in Dr. Tracey Mason's Instrumental Analysis class volunteered as judges for 4th and 5th grade projects at a Science Fair at Gunpowder Elementary school in Baltimore.  The SU students had a great time speaking and sharing their love of science with the elementary school students!

Biochemistry senior, Chris Toth (top picture, third from right) did what he usually does on Spring Break- he headed to New Orleans to help out!  Chris was one of 37 Stevenson students who traveled to New Orleans as part of the SU club, Mission: I'm Home.  The club partnered with Habitat for Humanity and with the Saint Bernard Project in order to rebuild homes or build new homes in response to the destruction from Hurricane Katrina. 

The site that Chris worked on was an opportunity house, which is a new home built for a resident of New Orleans to move into after being displaced. Chris worked on insulating the house (bottom picture) and hanging new drywall throughout the home. 

What an amazing experience and a wonderful opportunity to help others!
