The University of Louisiana-Monroes student chapter of the American Chemical Society received an Outstanding Chapter Award from the ACS Committee on Education. ULMs chapter received the award based on its 2011-2012 activities.
Award winning chapters will be recognized in the November/December issue of "inChemistry" magazine and at the ACS Student Chapter Award Ceremony, which will be held at the 245th ACS National Meeting in New Orleans in April.
The ULM chapter set two major goals for the year: community outreach to children and exploration of career opportunities. ULM was acknowledged by the advisors for "achieving these goals admirably."
"The national recognition improves the visibility of both our organization and ULM," said Dr. Laura Beal, instructor of organic chemistry at ULM. "We will be eligible for ChemLuminary awards in the future. It is also something that current members can put on their curriculum vitae because it represents both a significant contribution and a real accomplishment."
