ROHM AND HAAS AWARDS 18TH ANNUAL MINORITY CHEMICAL ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIPS

 ROHM AND HAAS AWARDS 18TH ANNUAL
 MINORITY CHEMICAL ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIPS
 Two Women Selected as Top Science Students in Philadelphia
 On Thursday, May 28, at 6 p.m., Rohm and Haas Company (NYSE: ROH) will present scholarships to two outstanding Delaware Valley minority science students through its Minorities Chemical Engineering Program (MCEP).
 The students will receive full scholarships to Drexel University for enrollment in Fall 1992. The special dinner reception will be held at Ristorante La Buca, 711 Locust St., Philadelphia.
 Since 1974, Rohm and Haas has provided scholarship money, hands-on internship and special mentoring programs for 39 qualified minority students from across the Delaware Valley. In total, 12 have become successful engineers with the company as a result of the collaborative program with Drexel.
 "Minorities currently account for less than 5 percent of the nation's professionals in math and science," said Delbert S. Payne, manager of corporate social investment for Rohm and Haas. "Through the MCEP we're really making progress by offering outstanding students an opportunity to fulfill their dreams of higher education while also providing a work experience that builds self-confidence and the courage to achieve for a lifetime."
 This year's awards will be presented to Tamika Dickerson of the High School of Engineering and Science, a Philadelphia resident, and Angela Simms of Coatesville Regional High School, a resident of Coatesville, Pa.
 Both have achieved excellence academically and in their extracurricular, community and civic activities which include student government, the National Honor Society, orchestra, dance, cheerleading, drama, chorus and Rotary service club, among others. In addition, Dickerson and Simms have received numerous academic and civic awards.
 Rohm and Haas is a strong supporter of local, regional and national education programs including America 2000, Junior Achievement, PRIME and Adopt-A-School, among others.
 Coverage of the awards ceremony and dinner is invited.
