“Dr. Lochhead has served the society with distinction during his more than 35 years of continuous membership, serving in various capacities from President of the Society to local chapter board service and CEP instructor to journal author,” said Erica O’Grady, CAE, executive director/CEO of the SCC. “Bob is a well-respected academic and industry veteran in the field of polymer science for cosmetics and personal care.”
This year, SCC is also presenting the award (posthumously) to a second recipient, Joe Pavlichko, in recognition of his service contributions during more than 41 years of active membership.
Pavlichko served as SCC president in 2000 and volunteered countless hours of his time over four decades in support of our founder’s vision. He passed peacefully on March 28, 2019.
“These two gentlemen have served the Society with distinction during their memberships and the caliber of their character and volunteer spirit are second-to-none. We are pleased to be able to honor and publicly recognize their contributions.” said Kelly Dobos, SCC president and cosmetics technical manager for Americas, Sun Chemical Corporation.
