Each year, the College of Letters & Science gives 5 awards for excellence to classified staff members. It gives us a very great pleasure to announce that for 2011-12, 3 of those 5 awards are going to Chemistry Department employees! Department Administrator Rosana Pérez-Ellmann, Organic Divisional Coordinator Kat Myhre, and Machinist Ed Vasiukevicius will all receive award plaques from Dean Gary Sandefur at a recognition ceremony in the Spring. They will also receive cash awards next week. Please congratulate them when you have the opportunity. Chemistry is blessed with many fine staff who make this Department run smoothly; please thank all of them. Congratulations to our award-winning staff!
