In the ACS News Section of Chemical and Engineering News, April 27th 2015 issue, our own Professor Delgado was recognized as a Stellar ACS Member who shows a deep dedication to chemistry students. The article was written by The American Chemical Society's Immediate Past President, Tom Barton.
- "Her proudest moments are those spent mentoring students whose potential she first identifies in her General Chemistry lectures. She finds them positions working in the chemistry stockroom and preparing teaching laboratories, continuously mentors them with regard to career goals and proper courses for success and gets them involved in chemistry clubs and research. She even has the most successful ones present undergraduate lectures under her tutelage."
One of her mentees wrote:
- "Dr. Delgado has been my mother figure at FIU for three years. She constantly encourages and pushes me to the be the best I can be in all aspects of life"
There is no higher praise for an educator.
Congratulations Professor Delgado !!!!
