The ACS Teacher Scholar Award, established in 2008 by the Santa Clara Valley section of the American Chemical Society, recognizes the contributions of Community College faculty to science and education. The award consists of an ACS plaque and a check for $500 for the awardee, with another $500 check being donated to the awardee’s college chemistry department. It is with great honor and pride that we come together to recognize San Jose City College Chemistry Professor Dr. Mark Zheng as the 2015 SCV ACS Teacher Scholar Awardee. Dr. Zheng was selected for this prestigious honor from among the thirteen community colleges in the SCV ACS local area, which includes five counties around San Jose. Dr. Zheng is an extremely talented and dedicated colleague who has gone well beyond his teaching responsibilities in the chemistry department. Whether in the classroom or at national conferences Dr. Zheng has demonstrated his dedication to the mentoring and encouragement of students toward academic success. A strong proponent of the San Jose City College Peer Led Team Learning (PLTL) program, on more than one occasion, Dr. Zheng has led teams of students to the National PLTL IS Conference. His efforts as a scholar and educator have served to have San Jose City College nationally recognized as a hub for the effective implementation of Peer-Led instruction. It is important to note that Dr. Zheng has also modeled leadership as an adjunct faculty representative in the Academic Senate. For all that he represents, Dr. Zheng has earned the respect of students, faculty, and administrators at San Jose City College. Please join us in recognizing an outstanding scholar, educator, and leader: Dr. Mark Zheng!
