Upcoming Exhibit
wcp 7-29 UPCOMING EXHIBIT – “Her Lab in Your Life: Women in Chemistry” is on display at the University of Tennessee at Martin Paul Meek Library. The focus of the exhibit, which officially opens during homecoming week, is to encourage young women to consider science, technology, engineering and math disciplines when they make education choices. UT Martin alum, Dr. Helen Cherry Bell, Dyersburg State Community College, who was one of the first UT Martin women to earn a chemistry degree, recently visited campus to reflect on her experiences as a woman of science. Bell also met with library staff and Dr. Judith Iriarte-Gross from Middle Tennessee State University and Dr. Edie Banner from Murray State University to discuss ways to pool time and resources to reach even more young women with this message. Pictured are (front, from left) Bell; Earlene Moore, UT Martin professor of library science; and Iriarte-Gross; (back, from left) Dr. Vicky Moeller, Lambuth University; Banner; Dr. Rick Thomas, UT Martin Department of Chemistry chair; Dr. Carol Blanchard, UT Martin assistant professor of chemistry; Cacy DeSheles and Lacey Fleming, both of MTSU.
