Students to Present Posters at National Symposium

SIOUX FALLS, SD – Seventeen Augustana students will be presenting posters at the National American Chemical Society Meeting and Symposium March 21-25 in San Francisco, CA.

The theme for the 239th ACS national meeting is “Chemistry for a Sustainable World.” This timely theme is appropriately chosen for the host city of San Francisco, which has already established a city sustainability plan. The meeting's multidisciplinary symposia provide an opportunity to educate attendees about current sustainability initiatives and how to use chemistry to improve our global environment.

ACS is a congressionally chartered independent membership organization which represents professionals at all degree levels and in all fields of chemistry and sciences that involve chemistry.

All the Augustana students attending the conference were involved in summer research projects in 2009. Dr. Jetty Duffy-Matzner, associate professor of chemistry at Augustana, will accompany the group.

Representing Augustana are:

Trent Anderson, senior, Jasper, MN; Nick Bleeker, senior, Shakopee, MN; Elliot Bloom, junior, Rapid City, SD; Jordan Clark, junior, Byron, IL; Shannon Cumiskey, senior, Worthington, MN; Liz Day, sophomore, Vermillion, SD; Adam Dittmer, senior, Coon Rapids, MN; Jeremy Erickson, junior, Lincoln, NE; Rob Fick, junior; Shenandoah, IA; Justin Grassmeyer, junior, Fremont, NE; Rachel Hurley, junior, Canton, SD; Connor Lamberson, junior, Marshall, MO; Huy Nguyen, junior, Vietnam; Neil Patel, senior, Worthington, MN; Michael Stutelberg, senior, Woodbury, MN; Kenan Tokmic, junior, Sioux Falls; Bethany Zogg, senior, Albert Lea, MN.
