UMSL Honors Students for Distinguished Achievement in Science
More than 200 proud parents and teachers came to honor 47 high school juniors February 20, 2014 at the annual Distinguished Achievement Awards for Science Excellence dinner presented by the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. This fourth annual event was fashioned to commemorate future science professionals who are currently in high school making excellent strides in science and engineering.
Maplewood Richmond Heights High School junior, Paul Meuser, was amongst the cohort that was honored. Meuser routinely involves himself with a number of extracurricular academic activities throughout the year.
The high school juniors were chosen by their schools for their academic achievement and outstanding capabilities in science. The record numbers of students honored attend public, private and parochial schools in the St. Louis region.
Theresa Thiel, Senior Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences and Biology Professor, presented the keynote address on “Using photosynthesis to make hydrogen fuel.” St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley and Mattie Moore, deputy director of U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill’s office spoke to the students and guests as well.
