Washington chemist re-elected to board of directors of world's largest scientific society

November 18, 1999

Glenn A. Crosby, Ph.D., a chemistry professor with Washington State University in Pullman, Wash., has been re-elected to the Board of Directors of the world's largest scientific society, the American Chemical Society. This is Crosby's third term on the Board. His new three-year term begins Jan. 1, 2000.

A member of the Board of Directors since 1994, Crosby will use his new term to enhance the influence of the Society in improving undergraduate and graduate science programs in the nation's colleges and universities. "It is my firm conviction that the educational system, at all levels, is not adapting fast enough to the exigencies of our modern economy, especially the need for a more technologically capable workforce and a scientifically literate citizenry," Crosby says.

A native of Washington, Crosby earned his Ph.D. (1954) from the University of Washington and received his B.S. (1950) from Waynesburg College in Waynesburg, Pa. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a member of the National Science Teachers Association. Crosby resides in Pullman, Wash.
