Greetings KLS members,

Last month I had the pleasure of jointly representing our section at the 20th annual ACS ChemLuminary Awards ceremony in Boston. What fun it was!! We won two awards this year: Fostering Interactions Between Local Sections & Student Chapters – for involving students in the SMACS groups with our science centers, and Outstanding Performance by a Local Section – Small Size Category Award – for our ongoing children’s science center activities, hosting a Nobel Prize Gala, celebrating National Chemistry Week, and participating in Earth Day activities.  Thank you to everyone who continues to contribute to making our section great!

As we look to the fall meeting line-up, please mark the following dates on your calendar:

  • Oct 18th: National Chemistry Week Demo Show @ UTM
  • Fri Oct 19th: Deadline for submitting professional & student award nominations.
  • Thu Nov 15th: KLS Elections & Awards @ Bethel U.

Finally, I know that the November elections might seem far away, but we are actively looking for who might serve as our next Chair-Elect.  If you would like to run (or nominate a colleague for the position) please contact me!

Best regards,
