Freeman A. Hrabowski III, president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and co-chair of the 2010 AAAS Annual Meeting, wrote in a nomination letter for Dr. Oppenheim that he could think of no one more deserving of the AAAS Lifetime Mentor Award.

Shirley Malcom, director of Education and Human Resources at AAAS, agreed.
