Meeting highlights include the Midwest regional award, sponsored by the St. Louis local section of the ACS, and the high school chemistry teaching award.

  • Kristin Bowman-James, a professor of chemistry at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, is the winner of the 2003 ACS Midwest Regional Award. Her research in molecular recognition is a major basis for the award. Bowman-James is considered by her colleagues as "one of the world's leading experts" in supramolecular chemistry. She has also contributed to public understanding and support of chemistry and chemical education through service to the Council on Chemical Research, the ACS, and research support agencies of the U.S. government. Bowman-James is also cited as a leader in advancing the cause of diversity and inclusiveness in chemistry.
  • Eugene Erickson, a teacher of chemistry and Advanced Placement chemistry at Lincoln Senior High School, in Sioux Falls, S. D., is the winner of the 2003 ACS Midwest Regional Award in High School Chemistry Teaching. He is recognized for making the teaching of chemistry fun and fostering interest in chemistry among his students. Erickson, a chemistry teacher at Lincoln since 1967, continually updates his pres
