New MolBio Faculty Ben Garcia Receives ACS Award
The Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has selected new faculty member Ben Garcia for a Leadership Development Award. The award is designed to support participation in the YCC Leadership Development Workshop in late January. Only 15 funded awards are granted. This YCC program recognizes emerging leaders in the profession and helps them prepare for the leadership opportunities at volunteer organizations, such as ACS, and in their professional career. YCC recognizes past contributions and leadership qualities.
The workshop was held January 25-27 in Dallas, Texas. During the workshop, participants engaged in discussions about the characteristics and behaviors of effective leaders, identify leadership skills, develop a personal leadership development plan, and learn about leadership opportunities in the American Chemical Society.
