     Corin Hammond

    “Although I am 30 years old, I am no stranger to hard work or success. I started working at age 11 cleaning houses and performing yard work in Oregon. I studied hard and earned scholarships that allowed me to pursue a college degree. I earned a chemistry degree on a full-tuition scholarship from Louisiana State University with Upper Division Honors. I earned a master’s degree in inorganic chemistry from the University of Arizona on fellowship and I am finishing a Ph.D. in soil and water geochemistry at the University of Arizona with a number of awards and scholarships under my belt.”
