The Fred M. Garland Memorial Lecture and Awards Ceremony is an annual Spring time event sponsored by the Chemistry Department at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. Fred M. Garland was the chemistry department chairman from 1950-1975. A nationally recognized chemistry scholar is invited to present a lecture to an undergraduate audience over a current topic of interest. Attendance generally exceeds 100 students, faculty, and staff. Three of the Garland lecturers have been Nobel Prize Recipients and other Garland Lecturers have received national acclaim from the American Chemical Society, the National Academy of Sciences, and other prestigious societies.
The event also includes the recognition of the Fred M. Garland Scholarship Recipients (an undergraduate chemistry major who will begin his/her senior year the following Fall Semester) and other students who have contributed to the strength and vitality of the department.
