Prof. Julie Fry [2008-], who was recently profiled in the December 2016 issue of Reed magazine under Teaching. Reaching. Inspiring., can now add another accolade. The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation has selected her as one of its seven Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars for 2017. The award provides an unrestricted research grant of $60,000 to young faculty at primarily undergraduate institutions who are accomplished researchers and committed educators.
Those of us who see Julie day in and day out know that this award reflects her sky-high level of commitment to Reed students and to atmospheric science. What the award doesn’t say, however, is how much fun Julie brings to the department. It is a joy to have Julie as a colleague.
