Award Winner: Laurie Locascio
Awarded annually since 2009, the fellows program began as a way to recognize and honor ACS members from academe, industry, and government for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and ACS.
The work they are doing will improve all of our lives as they unleash the power of chemistry to solve global challenges like providing clean water, sufficient food, new energy sources, and cures for disease. But that's not all they're also organizing scientific conferences for their peers, doing outreach with scouts and schools, and being mentors to the next generation of scientists.
Laurie will be honored at the society's fall national meeting in Denver, CO.
