Granger and Stiegman named fellows of American Association for the Advancement of Science
Two Florida State University College of Arts and Sciences faculty members — science-education advocate Ellen Granger and chemist Albert E. Stiegman — each have received one of the top honors in the scientific world: elevation to the rank of fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
Being named a fellow of the AAAS is an honor bestowed upon association members by their peers to recognize meritorious efforts to advance science or its applications. The new AAAS fellows will be recognized at the association's annual meeting in Chicago in February 2014.
"I am pleased to offer hearty congratulations to Ellen Granger and Al Stiegman on reaching the level of AAAS fellow," said Sam Huckaba, dean of FSU's College of Arts and Sciences. "Ellen's contributions to the area of science education are cutting edge. Al contributes substantially to Florida State's high reputation in materials science. Both are prolific researchers, and these awards are well deserved."
Granger's AAAS citation noted her "distinguished contribution, service and leadership in advancing knowledge and classroom practices in science education."
