Nazareth Hosts High School Chemistry Standouts

Nazareth College’s Chemistry Department is proud to host the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) High School Chemistry Student Recognition Awards on May 24 and 26 in the Arts Center’s Callahan Theater at 7:30 p.m. Over 700 area high school chemistry students from over 40 schools will be recognized during the two ceremonies.
The students come from six counties including Monroe, Orleans, Genesee, Wayne, Ontario and Livingston.  The Rochester section of the ACS is recognizing the top ten percent of students from regents, general and honors chemistry along with the top 20 percent from AP chemistry. In addition to the awards ceremony, the evening will include chemistry demonstrations given by members of Eastman Kodak Company.
The American Chemical Society is the world’s largest scientific organization, with over 160,000 chemists and chemical engineers worldwide. The Rochester Section of the ACS has a membership of nearly 900. These awards ceremonies are the largest of the ACS section’s community outreach education programs, recognizing hundreds of area high school students for their academic achievements in the study of chemistry.
