My name is Delvis Dore and I am a corrosion chemist for Caterpillar, Inc. at their headquarters in East Peoria, IL. I grew up on St. Croix and am a member of SCEC's class of 1998. In this day and age when we keep hearing that the U.S. is so far behind other countries in terms of advanced subjects such as math and science, it is refreshing to see that in our small corner of the country this is not the case. These students are exemplary and I wouldn't be surprised to hear of big things from them in the years to come.
East Peoria, Ill.
