IN MEMORIAL 


Local Delaware Section Member, Stephanie Kwolek, died June 18, following a brief illness. She was 90. Ms. Kwolek discovered Kevlar, which was later commercialized by DuPont. She was an active volunteer with the local section inspiring young scientists at our National Chemistry Week Events (see photo below).  We thank her for her remarkable contributions to science and vital role in keeping our loved ones safe.
