Three years of Beck-

The Beckman Scholars pro-
gram, directed by Randy
Duran, has just turned three
years old with great results.
Due to the quality of our best
incoming freshmen, and in
"a grand experiment," UFwas the first proi
to select scholars during their freshman yea
select juniors). Scholars each receive in excel
and do research for 3 years. We have now se
and have seen outstanding results from the

(working with R. Duran) was named a 200(
Scholar, has coauthored 2 peer-reviewed m

The Chemistry Department is proud of its many excellent undergraduate majors.
Now, thanks to gifts from several UF alumni and friends, the department is able to
honor a select few of these students. The Colonel Allen R. and Margaret G. Crow
award goes to the outstanding graduating senior. The Spring 0oo6 winner is Miko-
lai Fajer, a double major in chemistry and physics. Considering his grueling course
loads, Mikolai's outstanding GPA is indeed remarkable. There are three additional
awards for sophomores or juniors with superior records in chemistry coursework.
Each of this year's winners has an exceptional CPA.
The winner of the 2006 Howard M. Sheridan award is DubenionJoseph Moss,
who will complete the standard chemistry curriculum in Spring 2007. Abu-Bakr
Zafar, a junior in the biochemistry track, receives the 2 006 Gordon M. andJoyce L.
Smith award. The 2006 Joseph P. Lafornara award goes to Zachary Kean, another
major in the standard chemistry program. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
also chose Zach to participate in the University Scholars Program for his research in
polymer chemistry with Professor Ken Wagener. Chemistry Gators past and present
join in congratulating these outstanding students and in thanking the donors for their
generosity. -Kathryn Williams
