I know Sarah but we never worked together closely outside of the organic chemistry classes she attended. Ron Kay probably knows her best. I've sent him a note.
On another student -- senior Rowan Walker was awarded an NSF Scholars Program travel grant to attended the Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference this past month. In their award letter, the Green Chemistry Insitute indicated that this was "a competitive pool with a large number of qualified applicants." The grant supported Rowan's conference participation with a funds to cover the cost of student registration and travel expenses.

Greetings, chemistry profs-this just came in my email regarding a chemistry alum, Sarah Hines, doing amazing work. Of course we will follow up on this, but wanted to let you know and to hear from you any recollections you have of Sarah as a student. Since she graduated in '01, I'm figuring Irv may be the only one who remembers her. (Obviously they mean "Gordon" and not "Stillpoint" alumnus here ;). Please forward to anyone else who might like to know about this.
Thanks, and I hope your summers are going well,

My name is Kelley Meck. I'm coordinating a press strategy for PharmaSecure, Inc., a multinational Dartmouth start-up company aiming to stop counterfeit medicines in the developing world. PharmaSecure looks forward to announcing a major milestone in our brief corporate history in the next days or weeks and, anticipating that you may want to profile our acting CEO and co-founder Sarah Hine, who is a young Stillpoint alumnus. Below you'll find more details about the milestone we expect to be announcing.
PharmaSecure, Inc. To Conclude Tie-Up w/ Pharma Giant Within the coming weeks, PharmaSecure, Inc. and a top-5 Indian pharmaceutical manufacturer will close an agreement for a pilot project to label over six lakh (600,000) packages with a PharmaSecure coding system to allow chemists and consumers in India to authenticate the products with a text message or SMS. If successful, the project will provide the basis for the company to employ the authentication system on their entire product line, accounting for approximately 4% of the $8 billion Indian pharmaceutical market. It's a major milestone in PharmaSecure's brief history and we believe it represents an important step towards stopping counterfeits in India.
I would like to ensure you have the level of information and access you require to meet your publication needs, so if there is interest in this story, let me know what sort of story you would consider writing--
