KINGS POINT, N.Y. (April 21, 2017) – USMMA junior diver Adam Fisher (Edgerton, Wis.) beat out an extremely competitive field of applicants and was named one of just two undergraduate students national-wide to receive the prestigious 2017 Kenneth G. Hancock Award from the American Chemical Society (ACS). Fisher was honored before the entire Regiment of Midshipmen on Monday, April 24, at Delano Hall, and then was invited to Virginia this June to formally receive the award at the 21st Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference.
The award provides national recognition and honor for outstanding student contributions to furthering the goals of green chemistry through research and/or studies. This includes but is not limited to the research, development and implementation of fundamental and innovative chemical technologies that incorporate the principles of green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture and us, and that have the potential to be utilized in achieving national pollution prevention goals.
Fisher co-authored a paper on an experiment earlier this month titled Preparing and Testing a Magnetic Antimicrobial Silver Nanocomposite for Water Disinfection To Gain Experience at the Nanochemistry–Microbiology Interface.
