Rubber Division names scholars, schedules student colloquium.

The Rubber Division of the American Chemical Society has announced the winners of its undergraduate scholarships for the 2004-2005 academic year.

Kinsey Leigh Hastings, a senior in chemical engineering at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and a native of Plattsmouth, NE, is a previous winner of a Rubber Division scholarship for the 2003-2004 year. She will be the second Emmanuel M. Kontos Memorial Scholar of the Rubber Division, in memory of the late Dr. Kontos, a highly respected rubber chemist and technologist.

Mollie A. Beery, a junior in mechanical engineering at the University of Akron, Akron, OH, and a native of Rittman, OH, was awarded the Division's undergraduate scholarship.

With a stipend of $5,000, each of these scholarships shall cover tuition, fees and other expenses billed by the respective academic institution. Each winner will be presented with a plaque designating her a "Rubber Division, ACS, Scholar."

Each of these winners has an outstanding undergraduate record and will be an excellent candidate for employment in the rubber industry.

This is the seventh group of Rubber Division, ACS, Scholars, which continues the list of outstanding undergraduates receiving aid from the Division for their junior or senior year of college training in a technical discipline. This scholarship program is a continuation of the Rubber Division's record of service to the rubber industry since 1909.

In addition to undergraduate scholarships, the Rubber Division will offer something new for students. There will be a one-day Student Colloquium at the Division's 166th Fall Technical Meeting and Rubber Mini Expo '04 to be held in Columbus, OH. The colloquium will be held on Tuesday, October 5, and will give undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to present their research papers to peers and others in the rubber industry. The chair of the new student affairs committee responsible for the colloquium is Dr. Rikki Lamba from Columbian Chemicals. For more information about the colloquium and how to submit a paper, contact Tammy Sobleskie, Division Marketing and Meetings Manager, at

Following the student colloquium, students and others in the industry will be able to attend the Rubber Division's second career assistance workshop on Wednesday, October 6. The American Chemical Society is providing a speaker who will present the workshop, "Managing an effective job search," from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Columbus. He will then be available from 1:00-4:00 p.m. to review workshop attendee resumes and answer questions. This is your opportunity to gain valuable insight into the job search process, including resume preparation and interviewing techniques. You will also receive four ACS books on career management, resume preparation, interviewing and targeting the job market. See the main registration page on the Division's web site to register for this workshop.

The Rubber Division also offers an online career assistance center. This is available to post resumes and search for jobs in the rubber industry. You can access the center via the Rubber Division's web site. Many students and those already in the industry have secured positions using the center. Once again, this is your opportunity to take charge of your career.
