NIC student earns chemistry award

North Idaho College student Veronica Hendricks of Harrison was recently selected as this year’s NIC Outstanding Freshman Chemistry Student.
Each year the faculty members in NIC’s chemistry department select an outstanding student who completed general chemistry to receive one semester of tuition and fees at NIC as well as a Handbook of Chemistry and Physics from the CRC Press. Hendricks will receive the tuition waiver when she returns in the fall to enroll in organic chemistry. In addition, her name will be added to the Outstanding Freshman Chemistry Student plaque that hangs in the freshman chemistry laboratory at NIC.
Hendricks first became interested in chemistry during career day at Kootenai High School. She said she was considering a career in law, but also knew that she enjoyed mathematics and science courses. She decided to choose forensic science as a major since it includes study in many diverse areas.
This summer, Hendricks plans to work at Accurate Testing Labs in Coeur d’Alene as a summer intern in the Idaho Network Biomedical Research and Education (INBRE) program through the college.
