William Kiejan Tong, Environmental Scientist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in environmental science.
Mr. Tong became involved in his profession because the majority of the graduates went into the oil industry, but he did not want to relocate out of the state for that, so he continued on to graduate school and environmental jobs began to open up. He managed a position in his department, which then had led him to be hired by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and go on from there. He became involved in teaching because it was always in his best interest. Mr. Tong matriculated at Northeastern Illinois University, receiving a Bachelor of Science in geology and a Master of Science in earth science.
Mr. Tong’s career highlight was when he was working as injection control for 14 years. He also wrote a standard operating procedure for injection control summits, which was a three-year project and turned out really well. He is also proud to be a part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the past 29 years. Mr. Tong began his career in 1984 as a cervical science technical assistant at Northeastern Illinois University, remaining until 1991. Since 1991, he has been an environmental scientist with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and since 1994, he has been an adjunct professor at Oakton Community College. As a testament to his success, Mr. Tong received a Silver Medal and two Bronze Medals.
