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.

Greetings KLS members!  With the turning of the calendar from 2017 to 2018, we once again find ourselves in a new year of KLS programming and leadership.  Please join me in welcoming Kevin Revell as our new chair-elect.  Kevin is already hard at work planning the spring program—stay tuned for more details!

This month's speaker—Dr. Kevin Miller—is one of our own, and I know you won't want to miss the opportunity to come hear why we was selected for the 2017 KLS Outstanding Professional Member Award.  Dr. Miller specializes in organic and polymer chemistry at Murray State University and will be talking about applications of dynamic bonds in polymers.

As we enter the new year, I'd especially like to encourage you to be proactive in your KLS involvement.  Whether that looks like attending monthly meetings, participating in committee work, helping with the kid's science centers, fostering interest in National Chemitry Week, or designing a completely new KLS activity—opportunities abound!  If you are particularly ambitions, you can spearhead an application for up to $3,500 in ACS funding through the Innovative Project Grant Program.  Application deadlines occur twice years:  January 18 and June 30.

Best wishes for a wonderful start to 2018.

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.
