2015 Alumni

Hi Mrs Barnett,
My son Jackson Kiess is a 2015 BCAMSC Alumni, and he's currently attending Olivet College, majoring in Forensic Chemistry.  He's a member of Olivets' Gruen Chemical Society, and they recently competed quite successfully in an annual Battle of the Chemistry Clubs competition so we're pretty excited about the achievement!  I wondered if it would possible to post the update below to the 2015 Alumni section of the Center's website?  I know Jackson would love to share what he's been up to since graduation.  Please feel free to edit the posting as you see fit.
Thank you!
