Arizona State University's School of Molecular Sciences recently held its annual Awards and Recognition Ceremony for outstanding students and their families at the Memorial Union on ASU's Tempe campus. The ceremony recognized undergraduate and graduate students who excelled in academics and research.
Eight achievement awards and five scholarships were presented to the most talented and deserving undergraduate students from the school's 1,200 chemistry and biochemistry majors. The fall 2016 and spring 2017 Dean's medal winners were also recognized. Each award was presented by a faculty member selected by the awardee, who also gave a short summary of their achievements and accomplishments.
Also celebrated were outstanding graduate student researchers, including the LeRoy Eyring Memorial Fellowship in Chemistry George Yuen Memorial Award, and the school's most impactful student teaching assistants. The Distinguished Instructor and Student Associates of the American Chemical Society Distinction of Merit and Scholastic Occupation Faculty Teaching Awards were also presented.
These awards and scholarships recognize the talent and hard work of the recipients, and also provide financial support that allows them to focus on their learning and academic progress, and this is certainly appreciated by the students.
“Considering how women remain underrepresented in STEM fields, being awarded this scholarship has positively impacted my college career by reminding me that, no matter the gender, there are very thoughtful and generous people who want to help ASU students succeed,” said Shannon Sipes, this year's Therald Moeller Scholarship winner.
