LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – The American Chemical Society has recognized Eastern Oregon University’s student chapter with an Outstanding Award for activities during the 2014-15 academic year.
Members of EOU’s chapter, informally known as the Chemistry Club, will travel to San Diego in March to receive the award at the 250th ACS National Meeting and Exposition.
EOU is among 55 student chapters across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and the only school in Oregon, to receive this top honor.
The ACS Society Committee on Education selects student chapters for awards in three different classifications: outstanding, commendable and honorable mention. Awards for “green chapters” were also presented this year.
“This is such a great accomplishment, particularly, because we are at a smaller institution,” said Anna Cavinato, chemistry professor and club advisor.
“Our chapter continues to perform outstanding work and I am amazed at the level of commitment and hard work of our students. We are also very grateful to the ACS Richland Section for their continued support of our community outreach events including Girls in Science and Saturday Science, and for helping fund our trip to the national meeting.”
Among the club’s many noteworthy activities are outreach events to K-12 students, member participation at the national ACS meetings where students present research posters and engage in networking opportunities, and campus involvement.
