Quoting from the CSU News website:
"The Colorado Bioscience Association on Thursday night recognized Melissa Reynolds, assistant chemistry professor at Colorado State University, as Educator of the Year.
Reynolds was honored along with U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, state Rep. Cheri Gerou and Ernst & Young, among others.This is her second major award in the past year. In 2010, the Boettcher Foundation named Reynolds as one of only six inaugural Boettcher Investigators as part of the Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Program, which helps recruit, retain and advance scientific talent in Colorado. She was the only one from Colorado State named that year.
The Colorado Bioscience Association acknowledged Reynolds, a 2010 Boettcher Investigator, with this most recent honor because 'in addition to teaching graduate and undergraduate courses, she has organized professional development and entrepreneurship programs and mentored over 25 multidisciplinary students. Her positive leadership and encouragement has been continually evident to her colleagues, funders and the bioscience community as a whole.'"
