2021 ACS Outreach Volunteer of the Year Award Recipient
The Southern California is pleased to announce that Barbara Belmont has been selected as the recipient of the 2021 ACS Outreach Volunteer of the Year Award. Barbara, we appreciate your long and faithful service!
Barbara Belmont has been our Section’s technology savant since 1998, and that was crucial this year. When Covid 19 shut down our High School Olympiad, Barbara used Blackboard Course Sites to give our local section test online before National developed their test. Once National developed their local section and National Olympiad tests, Barbara continued to be involved and proctored the National Test online. When it came time for our High School Awards night, Barbara hosted our zoom event to honor our students. She also hosted our Tolman Award celebration with Prof. Andrew Borovik that was attended by over 100 people.
