INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College honored 39 facility and adjunct faculty at the annual President’s Award dinner on Thursday.
Now it its 42nd year, the President’s Awards program recognizes faculty and adjunct faculty members from Ivy Tech locations throughout the state.
The College honored each one of the winners for their exemplary work with students and the College community during the past year. A selection committee made up of alumni, past winners, State Trustees, faculty representatives, and college administration selected the honorees based on nominations from students, fellow faculty members, and Ivy Tech staff.
The faculty honoree from Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg is Bradley Fentress. He serves as an associate professor in the mathematics department.
Emily Johnson, adjunct instructor of medical assisting at Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg, was among the adjunct faculty honorees.
“The impact our faculty members have on our students extends far beyond the classroom,” said Ivy Tech President, Dr. Sue Ellspermann. “In addition to excellence in teaching, faculty members are often advisors, mentors, and role models for our students. Today, we are proud to recognize their excellence, passion, and dedication to Ivy Tech and the communities in which they live and serve.”
