Kelli Slunt, professor of chemistry, served as the head mentor for the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad team. Twenty of the brightest high school chemistry students were trained by Slunt, three other mentors, and the faculty at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado this June. Slunt accompanied the top four students to compete at the International Chemistry Olympiad in Washington, D.C. The team performed well, receiving one gold and three silver metals.
