Faculty members honored for teaching
(May 5, 1999)
Nine East Carolina University faculty members were recognized for their outstanding teaching at a recent campus ceremony.
Three faculty members received ECU Alumni Teaching Excellence Awards and six were named recipients of the University of North Carolina Board of Governors Distinguished Professor for Teaching Awards. Each award carries a $1,000 prize; winners were selected by faculty committees.
In addition, Edward "Mel" Markowski, a professor of child development and family relations who was honored last month as the ECU winner of the Board of Governors Award for Excellence in Teaching, shared his views on the characteristics of human nature and the elements of effective teaching.
Winners of the alumni awards were Brian Love, assistant professor of chemistry; Carl Swanson, associate professor of history; and Robin Webb-Corbett, assistant professor of nursing. The alumni awards, the oldest campus-wide teaching honors at the university, are named for Robert L. "Roddy" Jones; Carl Blackwood, Wes Singleton and the J.C. Bradford Co.; and Robert and Lina Worthington Mays. They were presented by Frank Grayiel, president of the ECU Alumni Association. Recipients of the Board of Governors award were Boni Boswell, assistant professor of exercise and sport science; Robert Graham, professor of psychology; Thomas Huener, associate professor of music; Love of the Chemistry Department; Michael McCammon, lecturer in exercise and sport science; and Karl Wuensch, associate professor of psychology.
