05/19/2003 Archived Entry: "Student Receives Award from Catalysis Society"
Whitney Conner is a fourth-year undergraduate chemistry student, who has worked at CAER during most of her days at UK (since May, 2000). She will graduate with a BA in chemistry, a BS in mathematics, and a BS in mathematical economics. Nothing but superlatives can describe her work here. Some of that hard work will be paid back soon, as she has received an award to attend the 18th North American Catalysis Society Meeting in Cancun, Mexico June 1-6, 2003. The award includes: registration fee waiver, accommodations for five nights, and up to $400 to cover airfare. She is one of the very few undergraduates to get this award, which usually goes to a graduate student or postdoctoral researcher.
About her time here, she says, “Working at the Center has had a tremendous impact on my life as a UK undergraduate. I've learned so much about the workings of a research lab "behind the scenes." I'm sure it has helped to prepare me for graduate level research.”
