RE: Recipients of outstanding teaching, research and service awards

Dear Colleagues:

Our most important commitment to University of Akron students is the commitment to success -- so that our students may achieve the dreams they envision for themselves and their families. Their ability to succeed begins with the dedicated efforts of faculty and staff across the University.

On Wednesday -- Dr. Proenza, Dr. Newkome and I, along with the recipient's colleagues -- had the distinct honor and privilege of recognizing five faculty and staff members for their outstanding teaching, research and service. Please join me in extending our appreciation to them.


William M. "Mike" Sherman
Senior Vice President and Provost
Chief Operating Officer
