|Angus donates $10.5k to ULM|
Officials with Angus Chemical, a subsidiary of Dow Chemical Co. in Sterlington, made a $10,500 donation to benefit areas within the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
The Department of Chemistry received $5,000 for student recruitment and public education on top of a $4,000 check already received from Angus, represented at the Wednesday, Jan. 12th, check presentation by Angus Site Leader Ernest Green, Joyce Priest and Gina Murrah. The Museum of Natural History received $1,500 for the purchase of a mammoth skull, which will be a new display in the museum.
"We will use the funding to get the word out that chemistry is a vital science," said Interim Department Head of Chemistry Richard Thurlkill. "One of the concerns within the chemical industry is that in the next 20 or so years there is expected to be a massive shortage of available engineers and scientists. Angus, through their donation, is helping us curb that shortage."
