Samantha Glazier, an associate professor of chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y., recently received the university’s J. Calvin Keene Award. The Keene Award recognizes high standards of personal scholarship, effective teaching and moral concern.
One former student wrote: “She has shown me that I can be in a field where the learning curve never plateaus. Working alongside her played an enormous role in my path to a doctoral program this fall.”
A nominator said: “In a recent conversation, she commented to me that ‘your integrity is everything.’ All you have to do is meet Sam to know that she lives this truth.”
Glazier grew up in Arlington, where her mother Dawna Berg still lives, and graduated from Arlington High School. Glazier has taught at St. Lawrence since 2004. In 2013, she was part of a cross-disciplinary group to win a Mellon Grant for work on courses that bring together college students with incarcerated persons to study a shared topic. She was the first science faculty member to be invited to the National Inside Out program.
