I recently met one of my first students at RIT, Mark Reiman (BS Chem 1988, MS Color Science 1999). Both of us were training for a triathlon and decided to try out the Syracuse Half Ironman bike course one May weekend. (Temperature: 46F, Wind: W @ 25 mph, Precipitation: ice pellets, light snow, rain)

I am saddenened to report the passing of SPC US Army Raliek Boswell on 24 September 2012. Raliek was a summer 2007 CIS High School Intern in the Magnetic Resonance Laboratory.


My high school chemistry and physics teacher, Mr. Henry J. McCann, at a school reunion. He was undoubtedly the first teacher who inspired me to become a scientist. I saw in him that evening the same personable, energetic, and keen-witted teacher who motivated me to learn chemistry and physics from his lectures and demonstrations. Thank you Mr. McCann.
