    Seniors Volunteer at Local Science Fair!!!

    A group of seniors from the Department of Chemistry volunteered as judges at the 2019 Russel County High School Science Fair on Wednesday, April 7th. The students (L to R: Jade Gallahair, Julie Reynolds, Thong Ta, Nicholas Wilson, Mason Hale, Jesse Hunt, and Ashley French) utilized their great science backgrounds to assess a number of posters representing projects across the physical sciences. When asked about the team, Chemistry outreach coordinator Dr. Meyers said "These students represent the best of CSU and the Chemistry department. They gave up their own time and travel expenses to help further our mission. In doing so they engaged high school students in STEM and hopefully encouraged them to continue that pursuit here at CSU. We are very thankful for their passion and service."
