NMTC Visionary Awards Honoree Receives Prestigious Honor

The American Chemical Society named Dr. Sandra K. Young, an Army research chemist and strong supporter of science, technology, engineering and mathematics outreach, as a fellow in a July 18 announcement.

Dr. Young also received NMTC’s Visionary Awards honor, for her work in STEM education and as a STEM student mentor at The Visionary Awards Gala, in 2013.

Throughout her career, Young said she has taken a personal interest in STEM education. She ran the APG STEM Center for the first two- years of its existence while teaching and mentoring middle school, high school and college students, and encouraging the continuing education of teachers. She has also taught an introduction to chemistry class for non-chemistry majors at a local community college since 2003.

The NMTC and the community it supports is proud of the work Sandy is doing and thanks her for her continuing years of service.
