Professor Craig Simmons, director of the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training at Flinders University has been appointed to the university's inaugural Schultz Chair in the Environment. The position, the first endowed chair at Flinders, was made possible through the D. H. Schultz Bequest established through the generous gift to the University by the late Donald Herbert Schultz, a distinguished South Australian optometrist and inventor, who was awarded the degree of Doctor of Science honoris causa by Flinders in 1987. Simmons said he was thrilled and humbled by the appointment. "Donald Schultz was a remarkable South Australian who was passionate about science and the state. To be appointed to a chair named after him is a great honour," Simmons said. "The position will provide an opportunity to profile the water and environmental research being carried out at Flinders."
