As the quarter starts, we’d like to remind everyone that the Department wouldn’t be what it is without the hard work of our staff members. They keep things moving smoothly and provide key services for our students and faculty. If you see them around, be sure to say hi and thank them for all of their hard work!
In fact, at the end of last academic year, our Department of Chemistry staff won the Annual Staff Recognition award from the University! Department Assistant Nicole Hack was nominated for her excellence in “planning, organization, and written communication”. Lab and Safety Manager Sara Rocus was noted to have “gone above and beyond in ensuring that labs are well prepared, chemical wastes are properly collected and all teaching labs are run safely”. Lab and Instrumentation Manager Bill Schjerven’s nomination notes the “outstanding job” he’s done maintaining and repairing department equipment.
Congratulations to our excellent staff!
