CARS Scientists Honored for Mentorship

August 2010
Jim Viccaro and Mark Rivers received awards from the DOE Office of Science’s Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists program in recognition of their dedication as mentors. 

Jim mentored Janet Soltau of the University of Vermont, who worked at ChemMatCARS in the summer of 2009 as part of the DOE’s HUPre-Service Teachers programUH.

In the summer of 2008, Mark mentored a group of three students, Maude Johnson, Lindsey Thomas, and Meagan Pinkney, and their advisor, Riyadh Al-Raoush, from Southern University and A&M College. The group worked at CARS under the DOE’s Faculty and Student Teams (FaST) Program; their work was highlighted by the APS.

Both student programs are administered by Argonne’s Division of Educational Programs.
