Chemistry Student Chance Morris Wins TENSOS Scholarship Competition


Chance Morris, a senior chemistry major with minors in biology and environmental studies, recently received the Student Scholarship Program Award from the Tennessee Environmental Network Show of the South (TENSOS) at their conference earlier this summer. TENSOS is a meeting for environmental professionals in the Southeast to meet and work together on tackling large environmental problems. Chance participated in a three round competition where he first submitted an abstract over his research project and was then invited to submit a poster over his work in the second round. He was one of the finalists to be invited to the third round of the competition to present his poster in person and give a short presentation at the TENSOS conference. Chance received one of two scholarships awarded at the meeting, and was the only undergraduate recipient. Chance conducts environmental chemistry research with Dr. Amanda Carroll working to remediate heavy metal contaminants from water sources.
