15th Annual ChemLuminary Awards Celebration

ACS Honors Volunteers in Indianapolis

The 15th Annual ChemLuminary Awards celebration was held during the ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis, IN, on September 10, 2013, at the Westin Hotel. The ceremony gives members a great opportunity to recognize local sections, regional meetings, and divisions that receive accolades for their tireless efforts and work in promoting chemistry and the chemical sciences in local areas during 2012.

ACS President Marinda Wu opened the ChemLuminary Awards event with welcoming remarks followed by a keynote addressed presented by Dr. William H. (Jack) Breazeale, Jr., recipient of the 2013 ACS Volunteer Service Award. Prior to the awards presentation, a poster session was held for members to view. The posters were presented by finalists of each ChemLuminary Award that reflects their outstanding activities being recognized. Approximately 45 awards were given to well-deserved local sections, technical divisions, and regional meetings. Immediately following the awards presentation, the celebration continued on the dance floor until midnight.
