Staff and Faculty Accomplishments
In March, chemistry department faculty and students traveled to San Francisco to present their work at the 239th American Chemistry Society (ACS) National Meeting. Attending chemistry faculty included Allison Calhoun, Frank Dunnivant, Mark Juhasz, Nathan Lien, Tim Machonkin and Deb Simon. Dunnivant, Machonkin and Simon each presented papers at the meeting, which typically draws more than 11,000 chemists, chemical engineers, academicians, graduate and undergraduate students and other related professionals. Representing the largest number of Whitman chemistry students ever to attend an ACS National Meeting, student presenters included Bailey Arend, Kevin Chung, Nate Conroy, Paul DaRosa, Anees Daud, Amy Doerner, Emily Doyle, Brandon Fennell, Matt Goldfogel, Nicole James, Hannah Main, Spenser Meeks, Madeline Polivka, Kristine Smith, and Tam Truong.
A series of photographs by Greg Lehman, communications officer and staff photographer, is currently on display in the Stevens Gallery at Reid Campus Center. Titled, “Walla Walla Wide,” the installation features panoramic images of Whitman campus and the surrounding Walla Walla Valley. The works, which are printed on canvas, almost giving them the look of oil paintings, will be displayed through August. Click here to learn more about Greg and his current showing.
