Students, Alumnae Judge Science Fair

Students are used to being graded by their professors. For them to judge the work of others, however, is a not so common experience. Several Notre Dame College students majoring in organic chemistry recently had the unique opportunity to experience just what that’s like.

The students were asked to serve as judges at the John Hay Early College Science Fair. They worked side-by-side with scientists and professors from around Northeast Ohio, including NDC alumnae Jody Jurkiewicz-Kocsis ’89 and Mary Louise Jurkiewicz-Beckstrom ’87.

“The students really showed their professionalism, and their enthusiasm was well-received by the high school students, teachers, and the other judges,” said Dr. John Moran, assistant professor of chemistry at NDC. “They did such a wonderful job of representing Notre Dame College. I have never been more proud of my students.”
