Outreach Volunteer of the Year awards recognize the efforts made by ACS local section and international chapter volunteers who conduct outreach and teach the public about chemistry. Each year, ACS local sections and international chapters can recognize one individual for demonstrating extraordinary outreach volunteer service.
This year, Denis Svechkarev, the current Section’s Chair, is among the recipients of the Outreach Volunteer of the Year award. Nominated by the Section for his efforts as Chair-Elect, Denis took the lead on several Omaha ACS Local Section activities & meetings in 2020.
“I like to see the spark in the eyes of those who I interact with, the feeling of being an ambassador and sharing my passion with the public”
