The award comes from the Department of Chemistry at the Colorado School of Mines, where she received her Ph.D. in geochemistry.

The chemistry faculty unanimously selected her for the honor as an alumna of the department. The purpose of the award is to honor outstanding graduates and make current students aware of the career accomplishments of its alumni.

A plaque with Lee’s picture and a brief description of her career and accomplishments were placed on the Wall of Fame in main corridor of Coolbaugh Hall in Golden, Colorado.

Lee received her Ph.D. in 1990 and came to Clemson as a research associate and assistant professor of environmental systems engineering. She has moved up the ranks, serving as professor of environmental toxicology and interim associate dean for research and graduate studies in what was then the College of Engineering and Science.

Anand Gramopadhye, dean of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences, congratulated Lee on the award.

“This is a well-deserved honor and stands as a testament to her outstanding career,” he said. “She continues to inspire students at Clemson and beyond.”
