CHEMISTRY 101: Texas A&M Prof Serves as Celebrant for Wedding Uniting Two of His Former Students

Feb 13, 2020
"A marriage ceremony is a wonderful, joyous event — a chance to celebrate publicly a lifetime commitment of two fantastic people. I have known Julia and Josiah since they were freshmen in my chemistry class in the fall of 2015. ... As a couple, Julia and Josiah are both inquisitive, interested and present. They are both kind, polite and respectful. They have both surrounded themselves with kind, supportive and loving friends. And they have excellent chemistry."
Dr. Simon W. North, Texas A&M chemist and head, Texas A&M Department of Chemistry
