I never knew chemistry could be a source of happiness, excitement and create positively critical citizens until I heard it from Collin College Professor Dr. Amina El-Ashmawy.

Her unique relationship with Chemistry not only makes her a passionate mentor, but also earned her the title 2015 U.S. Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

She is a published author, a trusted adviser in the American Chemical Society and serves on countless task forces. She also holds an associate degree from Kilgore College, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemistry from Texas A&M University and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of North Texas.

El-Ashmawy’s website welcomes readers with an intriguing quote. She cites American chemist Linus Pauling saying, “I feel sorry for people who don’t understand anything about chemistry. They are missing an important source of happiness.”
