The Program to Advance Women Scientists (PAWS) announces the election of officers for 2019-20:
Congratulations to the September 2019 Student of the Month, Alyssa Peterson.
Nominator Vivian Mendoza-Leon says, "Alyssa is an amazing organic chemistry preceptor who goes out of her way (outside of her office hours) to help me and other students review the lectures we've had. Alyssa is always willing to help by answering questions and explains things using analogies to help us understand and remember concepts."
This year, Soraya Sandoval has participated in the UA's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Consortium (UROC), which consists of several research programs that help underrepresented, low-income, or first-generation students obtain the skills necessary to succeed in graduate school. Soraya was part of the year-long Ronald E. McNair Achievement Program, a federally funded TRO program aimed towards preparing its scholars towards a doctoral degree.
