Two STEM Scientists in CLAS Named to Top 25 List

Date: September 10, 2013

The Top 25 list created by Online Schools of Michigan is intended to draw attention to those researchers in STEM fields deserving special recognition.  As explained on the website, "The list contains names of professors who have sustained research and teaching careers over the years as well as those who are new to their STEM field but are already making a splash in academia. At one time or another, all college students encounter studies in STEM subjects. They lucky ones take seats in the labs or classrooms of these extraordinary professors."

 

The two honorees from CLAS are:

Deborah  Herrington is Associate Professor of Chemistry and directs the Target Inquiry Program. She has received international recognition for her work in chemical education and professional development of high school chemistry teachers.

Janet Vail is an Associate Research Scientist with the Robert B. Annis Water Resources Institute. Her teaching focus is on science education with a specialization in environmental studies. She has served as Co-Chair of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Lake Michigan Forum.
