Message from our Chair

Greetings KLS Family. Now is the beginning of a new year. Now is
the time to resolve to participate in something great. Now is the time
to resolve to learn chemistry by listening to excellent chemistry
seminars. Now is the time to resolve to connect to the local
chemistry community. Now is the time to resolve to take time to visit
with old and new friends. Now is the time to resolve to eat delicious
pork chops. To fulfill all these resolutions and more, attend the
meeting this month at Fresh Market in Paris. I’m excited about what is
happening in our section. Come to this month’s meeting or visit our
website to find out what’s going on, then get involved.

r. Phillip Shelton 

Greetings all. I’m pleased to say this year has been a successful one for the KLS, culminating with being nominated for four Chemluminary awards. Out of those four nominations, we earned three this past month at the ACS national meeting in Washington D.C. One of the amazing things our section does is hold meetings each month during the academic year where current chemical research is presented. This month [September] is no exception. Please join us -- we’ll be treated to a presentation from John Hershberger of Arkansas State regarding the development of a cross-coupling and Biginelli reaction sequence leading to new bioactive derivatives. Students interested in graduate school are especially encouraged to attend!

Science Centers during KLS Meetings

Let your children (ages 0 - 14) enjoy supervised Science Centers while you listen to the KLS meeting speaker.

Your children will get to eat dinner with you, and then participate in age-appropriate science activities nearby.  There is no cost to attend the science center activities.
