Online instructors recognized with Parents’ Recognition Awards
Two online instructors were among a handful of Agronomy and Horticuture professors to earn the Parents Recognition Award on Feb. 2 at the Nebraska East Union. Chuck Francis, online instructor for Land Grabs in the Global South, and Don Lee, plant breeding & genetics online instructor, joined resident instructor/researchers John Guretzky, Stacy Adams and Daniel Schachtman in earning the recognition.
The awards are earned through nominations made from parents of Nebraska students. The Parents Association solicits nominations through an annual mailing, asking parents to nominate a faculty or staff employee who has made a significant difference in their student's life.
Presented annually, the honors provide positive feedback to faculty and staff about their work with students. The annual recognition ceremony was organized by the Office of Student Affairs and co-sponsored by the Teaching Council and the Parents Association.
More than 228 university employees were recognized. See full story for more details.
