Chemistry faculty member, Dawn Ward (left), was on the Plenary Panel for the Paul D. Lack Scholars' Showcase at SU.  Dr. Ward explained how her research has led to important results in the area of organic and medicinal chemistry, but more than that, students have benefitted by learning how to do research. Those students have used the deductive reasoning and the lab skills they learned from research in their careers and in graduate and professional school. She shared some wonderful stories about the students who have worked with her.

Warmest congratulations to Chris Toth (BS Biochem '16) on receiving his Masters in Biomedical Sciences Physician Assistant from the University of Toledo!  Chris' plans are to "return to Maryland and deliver care to this wonderful community!" When asked how his degree at Stevenson prepared him, he said "Stevenson prepared me for PA school by providing a strong, supportive and challenging curriculum forming my biological sciences foundation. The personal, professional advising I received provided the framework I needed to achieve my goals and ultimately end up in my dream career."

We're so excited for him on this wonderful accomplishment!

Olivia Apicella, senior chemistry major, completed her capstone internship by working as a Teaching Assistant for Fast-Paced High School Chemistry with Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. She worked at the satellite location in Carlisle, Pennsylvania at Dickinson College where she had the opportunity to work with gifted and talented middle and high school students from all around the world. Her main responsibilities were preparing for laboratory activities, managing the classroom, and assisting with student comprehension. She was even able to teach several topics while instilling a passion for science to her students. ​She is pictured here in front of the Rector Science Complex on the Dickinson College campus.
