TWU KEM Club earns top national recognition
Dec. 18, 2018 —DENTON— The Texas Woman’s University student chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS), Kappa Epsilon Mu (KEM Club), has been selected to receive an "outstanding" award for its activities during the 2017-2018 academic year. "Outstanding" was the highest recognition to be awarded, and special commendation was given to TWU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry professors and faculty advisers Nasrin Mirsaleh-Kohan and Yunxiang Li.
"Few faculty members are willing to make the great commitment of time and energy that a successful chapter requires. Professor Mirsaleh-Kohan and Professor Li's efforts certainly represent the best in undergraduate science education and mentoring around the country," said Peter K. Dorhout, Ph.D., 2018 president of ACS.
Over 400 chapter activity reports were submitted for the academic year, with the Society Committee on Education presenting only 69 outstanding awards nationally. The award-winning chapters will be featured in the Spring 2019 printed issue of inChemistry and honored at the 257th ACS National Meeting in Orlando, FL.
