An Opportunity to Memorialize Dr. Jim Byrd

Stanislaus State is deeply saddened by the recent loss of Dr. Jim Byrd, emeritus professor of chemistry and a Stan State faculty member for 35 years.

Dr. Byrd joined the Chemistry Department faculty in 1974 and taught until retiring in 2009. His long and distinguished career included serving as department chair for 17 years and being honored as the 1995 Stanislaus State Outstanding Professor. Throughout his many years at Stan State, he performed chemistry "magic" shows at Central Valley public schools, sharing his love of learning and chemistry. In addition, his scholarly research was published in national and international journals. He was also recognized for his work in training K-12 teachers and improving science education.

This page exists to allow you an opportunity to honor Dr. Byrd by supporting the work that was so important to him. A memorial gift will be a lasting tribute to Dr. Byrd and will be meaningful to the scholarship recipients who will continue to benefit from Dr. Byrd's passion for learning.
