Two University of Indianapolis chemistry alumni are gaining recognition and honors.

Dr. Jess Arnett Ebinger ’10 (chemistry and biology double major, biochemistry and pre-med minor) , an OB/GYN with St. Vincent Health Network, appeared on WTHR-TV in September to discuss ovarian cancer symptoms. Watch the segment here. Ebinger (pictured above) participated in Honors College during her UIndy career and produced a research project, “Got milk®? : a chemical analysis of melamine in milk.” She holds a degree from Indiana University School of Medicine and completed her OB/GYN residency at Palmetto Health/University of South Carolina School of Medicine. She is from Ossian, Ind.

Ashlyn “Nikki” Raymond ’17 (chemistry and biology double major, biochemistry minor) was honored with a “People’s Choice” award by her employer, Corteva (formerly Dow AgroSciences). Raymond is from Greencastle, Ind.

Employees within the Corteva Crop Protection Division nominated their peers in specific categories and voted for them. Raymond was recognized with the “Exceeding Everest” award by her coworkers at Corteva Agriscience. Raymond called it a “wonderful start to my career as a chemist.”
