A Golden Achievement

Linda Lorenz, a chemist at the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL), is celebrating an incredible 50 years of service to the Federal government this year. Amazingly, every one of those years was spent right here at the Lab.

“I have enjoyed working at FPL and being a part of the great research that is done here, because I have the challenge of helping to solve problems with chemistry,” Lorenz said.

While she has held several different positions and worked on various projects over the past five decades, currently Lorenz is studying wood adhesives in the Forest Biopolymer Science and Engineering research work unit.  She also regularly coordinates FPL’s robust volunteer and fundraising efforts.

Lorenz was honored this week along with many colleagues during FPL’s annual Length of Service ceremony.

Congratulations, Linda, and (since there is no talk of retirement, yet) keep up the good work!
