Farewell to Dr. Scott Kinnes - Department of Biology and Chemistry

After 40 years of service at APU, Scott Kinnes, Ph.D., professor emeritus, is fully retired from the Department of Biology and Chemistry as of the end of the fall semester. A graduate of Belhaven College and Duke University, as a fire ecologist he was drawn into research and teaching through his love of the outdoors and ecology. Kinnes taught several courses over his years at APU, ranging from general biology to microbiology to ecology. What he enjoyed most about being at APU was the people: the colleagues and students, and the community that existed across campuses. His presence in the Department of Biology and Chemistry and at APU will be missed, and we wish him well on the next steps of his journey.
