'Tis the Season: Faculty Awards

We are celebrating the end of the semester with two new acknowledgements of our faculty's hard work, vision, and talent:

 Prof. Chris Hughes has been selected to receive The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) Outstanding Faculty Award (OFA), which is the Commonwealth's highest honor for faculty at Virginia's public and private colleges and universities. This is a terrific recognition of his work and a testimony to the excellent work in physics and the encouragement and support of his colleagues. 

JMU's College of Science and Math Distinguished Teacher Award, which was established in 1981 to honor one faculty member annually for exemplary teaching, goes this year to Prof. Scott Paulson.  Scott is also the Cluster 3 (The Natural World) Coordinator for the General Education program at JMU.

 Two much deserved recognitions.
