LSI Student Excels in Chemical Field
After graduating from La Salle High School in 2014 as one of the inaugural members of the Lasallian Scholars Institute, Alex McGlasson decided to pursue a major in chemical engineering at the University of Cincinnati.
McGlasson credits his Lasallian Scholars Institute experiences as influencing his decisions, “LSI helped me find my passion for engineering and science in general. It gave me opportunities that no other student had in high school. I've talked to people about LSI, and there really is no other program like it.”
McGlasson has continued to search for and find opportunities at the University of Cincinnati. He found himself motivated to pursue success fervently because of all the experiences he acquired during his time in the LaSallian Scholars’ Institute, and his will to better himself. When asked about his achievements since graduating La Salle, he told us, “The four most notable things I have done since I have started college were co-opting at both Nease Performance Chemicals and Emery Oleochemicals, working as an undergraduate researcher with Dr. Greg Beaucage here at UC, joining UC CubeCats, and becoming the vice president of the [CubeCats].”
