Samuel Strayer, Technical Director & Chemist of Slide-Lok / Mirabel Coatings, Inc., has joined the Board of Directors for the Arizona Society for Coatings Technology. The Arizona society is part of a larger collective known as the Western Coating Societies (WCS) which puts on the biennial Western Coatings Symposium and Show. The WCS dates back to the 1950's whose purpose was to bring a national coatings symposium to the West Coast to provide professionals in the paint and coatings industry technical education and networking opportunities that were otherwise only available in the Midwest and East Coast.

Samuel is a graduate of the Arizona State University, having earned a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, and has been a member and supporter of the WCS and ASCT for several years. We are proud to have a co-worker contributing as a member of the Board of Directors for the ASCT. Samuel also serves the ASU community on the Board of Directors for the alumni corporation for the ASU chapter of Acacia Fraternity. Incidentally, the James Webb space telescope (JWST), is named after a fellow Acacian.
