2012 Distinguished Teaching Award and Scholarship Recognition Celebration
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Mar 7, 2012
I am looking forward to attending this evening's Distinguished Teaching Award and Scholarship Recognition Celebration at the UC Davis Conference Center.
Tonight we will be honoring Professor Evelyn Lewis, the recipient of the 2012 William and Sally Rutter Distinguished Teaching Award. Selection committee members Professor Clay Tanaka (the 2011 Distinguished Teaching Award winner), Kara Ueda ’00, Chair of the King Hall Alumni Association Board, and Nagin Yazdani ’12 chose Professor Lewis from among 12 faculty nominees. Congratulations, Professor Lewis!
Scholarship recipients will also be recognized at tonight's dinner. Jihan Kahssay '12, a recipient of the Jun Aoki Book Award, will deliver a speech that, I'm told, is powerful, touching, and filled with gratitude for the generous donors who make so many of King Hall's scholarships possible.
