UNC Professor Emerita Honored by National Scientific Society

Loretta Jones, professor emerita of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Northern Colorado, is being honored by the world's largest scientific society for her outstanding achievements and contributions.

The American Chemistry Society has named Jones to its 2014 class of ACS Fellows, which includes 99 scientists who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to the society.

Jones and other inductees will be recognized at the ACS's 248th national meeting Aug. 11 in San Francisco.

"The scientists selected as this year's class of ACS fellows are truly a dedicated group," said ACS president Tom Barton. "Their outstanding contributions to advancing chemistry through service to the Society are many. In their quest to improve people's lives through the transforming power of chemistry, they are helping us to fulfill the vision of the American Chemical Society."

Jones received the ACS Achievement in Research for the Teaching and Learning of Chemistry award in 2011, which recognized her pioneering work that directly affected countless undergraduate and graduate students and fellow researchers who have been influenced by her textbooks or research on multimedia and visualizations.

At UNC, Jones secured more than $7 million in grants and worked to build and sustain the doctoral program in Chemistry Education. In 2007, Jones earned the M. Lucille Harrison Award, UNC's top faculty honor. The award is given to a faculty member that excels at teaching, research and community service.
