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.
