Attendees at this morning's meeting were fortunate to hear a bit about our newest member, Chris Moore.  Chris grew up in the West Virginia Countryside where he loved racing go carts.  So much so, that he was good enough to compete out-of-state.
Upon completion of high school, Chris set off to college at West Virginia University Tech.  Following a path in Chemistry he moved on to the University of Virginia.  With the support of an encouraging woman, Michelle who he later married, he pursued a career in Environmental Chemistry and the effects of Mercury in the environment.  This path kept him moving around a great deal--Shenandoah National Park, Greenland, California, Alaska are just a few.
After focusing on Mercury in the environment, Chris changed his career to the effects of gasses in the Environment.  This change moved his family to Cary, Illinois where he now works as Senior Scientist for Gas Technology Institute in Des Plaines.  Please take the time to introduce yourself to Dr. Chris Moore.  Don't let that "Dr." title fool you.  He's a very down-to-earth fun person to be around.
