Stand Up and Be Seen!
Professor of Chemistry Dr. Paul Hines was honored in 2011 by the Northeast Association of Advisors for the Health Professions. The organization presented Hines with an award for lifetime service.
Hines, who earned his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania, joined the Western chemistry faculty in 1968, specializing in the field of organic chemistry. He serves as the pre-health professions advisor at Western, working with a faculty committee drawn from several academic departments to guide undergraduate students in preparing for graduate study in a wide range of health-related professional fields.
In addition to his more than four decades’ service on the faculty, Hines has held several administrative positions at WCSU, currently serving as interim assistant dean of the Macricostas School of Arts and Sciences. The dedication of Hines and his wife, Dr. Ann Hines, to community service in the Danbury area received recognition when the couple received the Ruth Haas Community Leadership Award presented by the WCSU Foundation in 2009.
