ONALASKAN NAMED OUTSTANDING CHEMISTRY STUDENT

LA CROSSE, Wis.-Viterbo University senior chemistry major Pam Smith, from Onalaska, was named this year’s Outstanding Chemistry Major.

She was selected for this honor by the chemistry faculty at Viterbo. The award is sponsored by the American Chemical Society (ACS) and includes a one-year paid membership in the ACS, an ACS pin and pen, and a framed certificate.

In May, Smith will graduate from Viterbo University with a double degree in biology, with a biomedical emphasis, and chemistry. Following graduation, Smith will work at the Chicago Medical School as a research technician in the biochemistry department under Dr. David H.T. Harrison. However, her long-term plans include attending graduate school to earn a doctoral degree in either biochemistry or molecular biology.

Smith is originally from Rhinelander but came to this area when her family moved to Onalaska while she was a teenager. She graduated from Onalaska High School in 1999.

Viterbo University is a four-year, co-educational, liberal arts university located in La Crosse. Viterbo was founded more than a century ago by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.
