In addition to earning one of this year's three possible American Chemical Society Division of Inorganic Chemistry Awards for Undergraduate Research nationwide, Texas A&M senior chemistry major Tucker Folsom '19 is described by his mentor, Texas A&M Distinguished Professor of Chemistry Donald Darensbourg, as among the top few students he's supervised during his nearly five-decade career in chemistry.

Texas A&M Chemistry Senior Tucker Folsom ’19 Honored with ACS Undergraduate Research Award

Nov 30, 2018
"I've been on the faculties of three research universities during the past 50 years, including Texas A&M University for the last 36. In that time, I have worked with numerous aspiring, bright young chemistry students, and Tucker Folsom would rank in the very top three or four students of that group of over 100. Many of those students have gone on to top universities for Ph.D. degrees with fellowships and are distinguishing themselves in academic and industrial careers."
Dr. Donald J. Darensbourg, Texas A&M chemist
