We are pleased to award Sarah Rivera this year’s Heller-Dabrowski Award. Sarah is the Science, including Chemistry, teacher at Mayfield High School. She has a strong passion for teaching and integrates the use of instructional technology to bring opportunities to her students. She has been described with phrases such as a “go getter, energy for days, positive, full of grit, and problem solver”. The support she provides these students is very important and truly appreciated by the Chemistry community. Sarah will be recognized at the April meeting of the Cleveland-ACS.
