Message from our Chair

Greetings KLS Family. Now is the beginning of a new year. Now is
the time to resolve to participate in something great. Now is the time
to resolve to learn chemistry by listening to excellent chemistry
seminars. Now is the time to resolve to connect to the local
chemistry community. Now is the time to resolve to take time to visit
with old and new friends. Now is the time to resolve to eat delicious
pork chops. To fulfill all these resolutions and more, attend the
meeting this month at Fresh Market in Paris. I’m excited about what is
happening in our section. Come to this month’s meeting or visit our
website to find out what’s going on, then get involved.

February may be the shortest month in the calendar, but there’s double
the opportunity for you to meet and mingle with other chemistry
enthusiasts this month!
For our regularly scheduled meeting we’ll be hearing from Dr. Bikram
Subedi, professor at Murray State University. Dr. Subedi specializes in the
development of analytical methods to analyze chemical contaminants in
water and will discuss the application of these methods toward quantifying
illicit drug use within communities.
The following week, on Tuesday February 27th, an ACS “program-in-a-box” event Opioids: Fighting
Addiction With Chemistry will take place. This topic is incredibly timely and the program promises to
be engaging and informative. Dr. Rebecca Brown will be hosting at WKTCC in Paducah KY, and
Drs. Abigail Shelton and Robbie Montgomery will be hosting at UTM in Martin TN. If you would like to
attend, please contact one of them for more details.February may be the shortest month in the calendar, but there’s double
