I am honored to report that I have received two prestigious awards from my university during this academic year:
2016 NWU Faculty Advisor of the Year: students may nominate a faculty member who has provided exemplary guidance, assistance, and encouragement in students’ academic (and otherwise) careers.
2015-2016 NWU Faculty Scholar Award: for a faculty member who has exemplified excellence in professional scholarship.
I am honored tremendously by both awards, but I have to admit that the award from students may have brought tears to my eyes during the presentation of the award. It is a beautiful thing to know that students appreciate me enough to take the time to nominate me for this award. I will cherish it forever.
