The Nazareth College American Chemical Society (ACS) student chapter received a Commendable award for its activities conducted during the 2017-2018 academic year.

The ACS committee on education received more than 400 chapter activity reports and it presented 69 outstanding, 92 commendable, and 145 honorable mention awards. The award-winning chapters will also be honored at the 257th ACS National Meeting in Orlando, Florida, in March 2019.

ACS President Peter Dorhaut  gave kudos to Jane Shebert, faculty advisor of the Nazareth chapter. “Few faculty members are willing to make the great commitment of time and energy that a successful chapter requires. Her efforts certainly represent the best in undergraduate science education and mentoring around the country.”
