to the winners of the 2010–2011
Student Chapter Awards
t is a tremendous honor for me to help celebrate the many accomplish-
ments of the ACS student chapter members and their faculty advisors
throughout the country. In this International Year of Chemistry, you have
spread a greater public understanding and appreciation for science through
your many outreach events in your communities and on your campuses.
Through your participation in student chapter activities, you have gained
valuable professional skills that will serve you well throughout your career.
As the International Year of Chemistry winds down, I encourage you to continue
your award-winning ways. These personal experiences, combined with your outreach to
the next generation, hold great promise and set the stage for exciting careers and impor-
tant contributions that advance the chemical enterprise and address world needs.
We need to work together now more than ever. We need to communicate the central role
chemistry plays in developing a sustainable future and how chemical research is crucial
for solving our global problems involving energy, food, water, and health. Thank you for
all you have done in advancing the mission of ACS.
Here’s wishing you all the very best for a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season.
Looking forward to seeing you in 2012!
Nancy B. Jackson, President, American Chemical Society
