Alumni and friends of Dr. John Blackburn, Professor Emeritis of Chemistry, are cordially invited to the dedication of the Dr. John Blackburn General Chemistry Laboratory in Asher Science Center on Thursday, April 18, from 5:30-7 p.m. The dedication ceremony will be followed immediately by a reception.

For several months, efforts have been underway to raise the funds needed to make significant improvements to the lab. The goal of $50,000 is close to being reached, thanks to the generosity of those who remember Dr. Blackburn fondly and appreciate that his teaching helped prepare them so well for their careers.

There is still time to contribute, if you haven’t already done so. Just go online to make a secure credit card gift, or mail a check to Blackburn Laboratory, c/o Georgetown College, 400 East College Street, Georgetown, KY 40324.

Donors’ names will be listed on a plaque permanently placed in the laboratory, unless anonymity is requested.
