Duane on her volunteer role model and why: “My volunteer role models range from chemistry’s most eminent scientists to innumerable ACS colleagues and the chemists in my family. With their willingness to give back to the profession and the enterprise, they convinced me that chemists are natural leaders. It is essential that new ACS leaders are prepared to respond to the future with the knowledge and skills that will allow them to lead in the society, their workplaces, and their communities.”
What her colleagues say: “Her work is exemplary. She gives freely of her time and talents and treasures truly making a difference in people’s lives. I can think of no one who more completely embodies the tenants, purpose, and requirements of this significant recognition.”—Tom Lane, retired from Dow Corning and an ACS past president
