The Chemistry Advisory Board meet in September where Dennis Smith, Head of the Department of Chemistry, provided an overview of the current state of the department. In addition to presenting a vision for moving the Department ranking to a top 75 doctoral program within the next few years, Dr. Smith laid out a mission for advancing society through education, collaborative discovery, leadership and entrepreneurship by leveraging MSU core strengths in agriculture and engineering.
The advisory board and full professors welcomed our newest board member, Patsy Fowlkes (B.S., 1974). Patsy hails from nearby Amory and is a longtime supporter of the University with special affection for the women’s basketball program.
The CAB plans to meet in the Spring and we hope to see Board members at both our Alumni & Friends Reception at the Spring ACS meeting in New Orleans (March 19, Mulate’s) and the 8th Annual W. Lester S. Andrews Graduate Research Symposium held May 15 - 17.
