Northern Nathan

Chemistry Department
Recognition Year: 
2017

Nomination submitted by Kirby Underwood, Chemistry Department.

Nathan Northern has been working in the chemistry lab since 2014 preparing apparatus and chemicals for appropriate use in general chemistry teaching labs and chemical demonstrations. He has assumed a leadership role by training and mentoring new employees in the lab, served as a role model for the other students to push themselves to learn and excel, and made himself available to respond to other employees’ questions.

Nathan led discussions on process improvements and demonstrated initiative by taking safety and other pertinent training modules prior to being asked. He is always ahead of schedule on tasks and immediately begins planning the next task.

Nathan excels in other areas as well. He is the Treasurer of the Multi-Cultural Association of Pre-medical Students and President of CRU. He also volunteers at House of Bread, Metamorphosis Weekend, Wright State Blood Drive, Raj Soin Hospital ER, and the Ronald McDonald House. Even with all of these activities Nathan was on the Dean’s list all semesters of his undergraduate career and has secured early admittance to medical school.

The contributions Nathan has made to the chemistry lab will have positive implications for years to come.

Congratulations Nathan!
