SPRINGFIELD— Capping off a day-long celebration of the Liberal Arts at Wittenberg University, the campus community came together to celebrate the achievements of students and faculty members alike at the annual Honors Convocation, Friday, April 7, in Weaver Chapel. The faculty commemorated the occasion in full academic regalia as the university recognized the high achievement of Wendy Hawk of Washington Court House and other students and faculty members in academic and co-curricular activities.
During the ceremony, the 2017 Alumni Association Award for Distinguished Teaching was presented to professor of psychology, Jeff Brookings. The award was established in 1960, and it is the highest recognition Wittenberg bestows on its faculty. It is accompanied by a stipend of $2,000. Candidates must have taught at Wittenberg for more than five years and are nominated by students, alumni, faculty and staff.
Assistant professor of psychology Nancy Woehrle was also recognized for her work during the honors convocation with the Omicron Delta Kappa Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award.
