When the American Chemical Society (ACS) meets in Philadelphia for its national meeting later this month, the prestigious body will honor a longtime University of Toledo faculty member.

Dr. Andy Jorgensen, associate professor of chemistry, was selected as a member of the 2012 class of ACS Fellows. This group was nominated by their peers and selected not only for their achievements in and contributions to the sciences, but also for volunteer service to the ACS community.

“Dr. Jorgensen’s dedication to his profession and to teaching are well-known across campus,” said Dr. Karen Bjorkman, dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. “This recognition is very well-deserved and serves as further evidence of the outstanding faculty we have in the college and at UT.”

The lifetime fellowship comes as Jorgensen marks his 35th year as a member of the American Chemical Society and his 12th year as the elected representative for the Toledo local section.

“The American Chemical Society is a leader in the areas of chemical education, scientific advancement and outreach to the public,” Jorgensen said. “I am proud to be a member of the organization and am honored to be selected as a 2012 Fellow.”

The 2012 ACS Fellows will be honored at a special ceremony Monday, Aug. 20. The full membership of the 2012 class was listed in the July 23 issue of Chemical & Engineering News.
