Professors nationally recognized for teaching excellence
The award recognizes individuals who demonstrate excellence in higher education in the agricultural, human and natural resource sciences. In addition to classroom teaching excellence, the award also recognizes the recipients' contributions to the culture of teaching on campus, scholarly activities related to teaching and involvement with students outside of the formal classroom setting.
The UK faculty members who received the award were plant and soil sciences professor Larry Grabau, landscape architecture assistant professor Brian Lee, agricultural economics associate professor Leigh Maynard, nutrition and food science Lecturer Tammy Stephenson and horticulture associate professor Mark Williams.
"One of the hallmarks of a great teacher is continuous professional development," said Mike Mullen, professor and associate dean of academic programs in the UK College of Agriculture. "These award recipients have joined a select group of teaching faculty receiving the honor, and they should be very proud of their accomplishments.
At the same meeting, Mullen was named president of the organization. Mullen previously served as the society's eastern region director, the liaison to the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges and also as president-elect.
